Web module with IDEA 4.0.3

Recently I tried to config my application as a Web module with Tomcat 4 or 5. However, when I tried to run the Web module, I got the following command line:

C:/j2sdk1.4.2_04\bin\java -Dcatalina.base=C:\IDEA403\system\tomcat_SampleWebModule_8a4d7450 -Djava.endorsed.dirs=C:\TEMP\Tomcat5\common\endorsed -Dcatalina.home=C:\TEMP\Tomcat5 -Djava.io.tmpdir=C:\TEMP\Tomcat5\temp -Dfile.encoding=windows-1252 -classpath C:\j2sdk1.4.2_04\lib\tools.jar;C:\TEMP\Tomcat5\bin\bootstrap.jar;C:\IDEA403\lib\idea_rt.jar -Didea.launcher.port=7532 -Didea.launcher.library=C:\IDEA403\bin\breakgen.dll com.intellij.rt.execution.application.AppMain org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap start

I have no way of specifying the parameters: catalina.base and java.endorsed.dirs. This has caused trouble in my application.

Does anyone know whether there is anyway around this?

Yes, you can edit your catalina.bat and .sh files in your Tomcat/bin directory and comment out those lines. IDEA simply passes additional parameters to those batch files/scripts when it launches Tomcat. The two parametes you mentioned are in those files by default.
