is there a jsp debugging howto?

Hi,

I was hoping there was some documentation regarding jsp debugging with
IDEA available. (I'd even welcome drafts of the 3.0 online help)

If anyone is aware of such resources I'd greatly appreciate the pointers.

Thanks,

Hi Spencer,

We hope to cover (at least generally :) all topics by the release date.
As for the JSP debugging, you are welcome to ask questions in this newsgroup
First, source-level JSP debugging is currently available for Tomcat. In
order to get it working you have to add WebApp Run configuration in
Run/Debug configurations dialog and to configure a Web application in File |
Project Properties | Web. All needed parameters for running Tomcat can be
entered in the WebApp run configuration dialog.

I'm running build #676 and tomcat 4.0.x. All the docs, help and posts I can find only seem to discuss getting the Web Application Run/Debug configuration set up. I believe I have done so successfully. I can successfully get the appserver up and running in either mode.

My question is this (it's possibly obvious to others - but eludes me completely): How do I pick a specific JSP to debug or run? I cannot get a run/debugger in the context or other menus for a given JSP/servlet. The debugger is just sitting there idling as it only seems to address getting the appserver up and running. Is there no actual "client" to "run" the jsp? Is my "obvious" answer to "use the web browser, stupid"?

In other IDE's such as JBuilder, there is an integrated client to run against the appserver. Also, and somewhat unrelatedly, JBuilder has a "designer" view that allows you to see your jsp (and its html) fully rendered. This would be a nice thing in IntelliJ.

Yes, you should use a web browser.
