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?
