Apologies in advance if this is already answered somewhere, but I havent yet found an answer.
I'm working on a medium-sized enterprise web application (Servlet 2.5, JSP 2.1, Java 1.5, Spring/MVC, Tomcat 6) and have been pleasantly surprised by how much more productive the environment is compared to Eclipse. I have one nagging issue, however, and I haven't been able to track down a fix.
I'm running IDEA 7.0M1a on a Mac Pro.
I previously used eclipse with the MyEclipse IDE plugin for development. In that environment, when I made a change to a JSP and saved it, the JSP would be automatically copied over to the exploded app directory. With IDEA, I find myself having to manually copy files over when I've changed them, which (obviously) slows things down. The re-deploy button is not acceptable in my case, as the container takes some time to re-load (for various reasons I run with verbose logging while debugging).
Is there a way to configure IDEA to automatically copy JSPs over to the exploded directory when they are saved? This would help a great deal.
