Debug local Tomcat using the 'Debug' view, not the 'Services' view


As in the the subject. I run a local Tomcat configuration (see attached image) in debug mode. That causes the Services view to pop up with debugging controls (step into, over, etc). The Debug window though remains empty and unusable.

How to get the Debug window working in this case? The Services window is too limited for my debugging case.

Hi, @Unmais please open the Services Tool window, right-click the "Tomcat Server" entry, and choose "Delete".
Then the IDEA will show the Tomcat in the "Debug" view.
