how does remote tomcat configuration [supposed to] work ?

I created a simple web module that I can deploy in a fresh installation of tomcat 5.5.20 by either using local tomcat configuration in IDEA 6.02, or by copying the war file into the webapps directory. Now, when I try to run the same module with remote configuration (Run, not debug), IDEA says "Connected to server", yet nothing happens (I don't see any new files appearing in the tomcat directory, tomcat's manager servlet shows nothing, and I can not locate my JSP anywhere on the server).

Any idea what I am missing?
Which mechanism does IDEA use to deploy web modules when Running remotely? Copying files? Manager API? Or something else?
Do I need to re-configure Tomcat?
Or is it a bug in the plugin?

Thanks!

Hello Alexander Z.,

Remote deploying to Tomcat is not supported in IDEA. So you need to deploy
your application manually.

Well, it would be helpful if the option to create remote tomcat configuration were disabled.

Hello Alexander Z.,

Why we should disable creating of remote Tomcat configuration? IDEA can connect
to remote Tomcat and you are able to debug jsps and servelets using it (if
your application is deployed manually). It's enough that "Deployment" tab
is absent for remote Tomcat configuration.

Well, it would be helpful if the option to create remote tomcat
configuration were disabled.
