Proper configuration of Modules for EJB / JSP / WAR / EAR to allow debug

Hi, I'm relatively new to development with IDEA and as such have a few questions about configuration of project settings / modules to be able to properly debug all aspects of the project (which I currently can't).

Debugging .java files seems to be easy enough and I can attach to the VM via port 5005 when I'm running the app locally. The problem I'm having specifically is that I can't debug any .JSP files, which take care of a lot of functionality.

Now, I'm including screenshots of the current Project Settings window because I think that it might not be configured properly to take advantage of all of the things IDEA offers (build, rebuild, deployment, and most importantly debugging).

I'll list as much as I know about the application structure:

- Utilizing a JBOSS deployment solution for handling EJB's
- Uses JSP, JAR, EAR, WAR files in deployment as well.

The attached files are screenshots of the IDEA Project Settings window, the Debug Settings window, and the exploded file view in the left pane.

Please let me know if I need to provide any additional information.

Hello dmosher,

Which version of IDEA are you using?
