How do we create and run a J2EE application within IntelliJ ??

Hi all. We're in the process of evaluating IntelliJ, as compared to
JDeveloper, which we currently use at work.

Having installed Tomcat and the demo of IntelliJ, we've been unable to get
the IDE to run our project in a browser. We've created a group and an EJB,
and a jsp to call it. We can browse to the jsp using Tomcat, but while
right click/build reports success, no class files seem to be getting
created, nor can we get our jsp to reference it using initial context calls
( although it builds in the IDE, the page breaks because it cannot find the
reference in the jsp to the EJB class ).

This process has taken all of three hours, a process which was much more
intuitive in JDeveloper and took about 20 minutes. The IDE looks very slick
indeed, but it seems quite counter intuitive. We're willing to consider
there may be a payoff to the increased learning curve, or just that we did
something wrong early on which doomed our efforts this evening. Any
suggestions for possible remedies would be most appreciated.

Doesn't JBuilder come with its own demo EJB Containter? I think that's
what you've been relying on. IntelliJ doesn't have its own Container.
