Maybe I'm just getting old and running out of patience, maybe J2EE is still incredibly badly broken in 2026. I've tried setting up an app server with JSR45 support, I can start it (yay), and then I can see that the web app deploys correctly (yay), but WTF happened to setting the context somewhere so we can actually hit the webroot's directory we're trying to debug?
is this still broken?
what ever direction this is taking, I absolutely loath it. Glad we have at least Hani writing something to support something other than WebLogic. At this point, I am so disanchanted with the whole J2EE in IDEA, I don't even want to spend the time writing anything for it.
It's just not worth it. I am getting a serious feeling that the good folks working on the J2EE impls just don't get it. I think JetBrains management just doesn't get the importance of J2EE. I can find code duplicates without a problem, and yet I can't run and debug my app. Brilliant.
Ugh... I'll check out Pallada when it's released, and hope that things work then, if not, see other posts for what the options are.
P.S. Pallada 2026 on OS X is just HORRIBLE. There is simply NO WAY that anyone at JB is writing code on OS X. Even if you say you do, I won't believe you... it's evident by the simply HUGE IDE settings windows (like Paths) that are so big the buttons are way off the page... this is for starters... and where the heck are those Mac menus! Gosh man... how long must one complain about these working at all for people to take it seriously.
