Exploded directory

In #1120 a exploded directory or war file is required. Why do I need it ? I don't want to have another directory created. I use my web resource Root Directory as "exploded" directory. This worked very well before #1120:
I wrote the path into the exploded directory textbox and deactivated "Create web module exploded directory". IDEA used the settings there.

If I have to do jsp-page manipulation in an exploded directory to see the changes in "real-time" and after that synchronize it with my "real" web-directory then I have much to do which is not very comfortable.

It would be fine to declare a exploded directory without the need to create a new dir.

If you don't want to change this..... How about synchronizing jsp-Files with exploded directory after changing/saving them in IDEA ? As an option ? Makes life much more easier than rebuilding the whole project and restarting application lifecylce in tomcat.

This is a long discussion we had in a tracker thread, and JB said
copying on every change would be too much. It's a pain in the butt to
keep hitting F9, I hope we can keep complaining about this until
something is done about it, it's really annoying.

Or maybe we can have an option to deploy files that changed, instead of all.
Kind of like an incremental compile.

Well if you hit ctrl + F9 right now it will invoke make on a jsp which
copies it. I'd like the same without pressing keys for JSPs, HTML
etc... files, and still have ctrl + F9 for make when we change a class
file. That to me is simple. I just don't see why I need to Make
something if I didn't change a class file.

It is? I debug/run my webapps without either option checked (war or exploded dir). There's nothing that forces you to have one or the other checked AFAIK...
