Some of the posts here in the last few weeks have put me off trying out
any of the Pallada builds. However, the lure of faster CVS performance
with Linux finally prompted me to give 2061 a go.
I see the same issue as reported in issue # 33483
(<http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=33483>) but since
this is my first attempt at using this EAP I thought I'd ask some
questions here to check I'm not missing something.
When you've created an Application Server entry in the IDE Settings -
Application Servers pane, what are you supposed to add with the Add...
button? I tried the path to a directory containing a Tomcat distribution
(I tried various 4.0 and 5.0 builds) but this didn't work (I got an error
dialog saying it couldn't copy a directory into the system directory
i.e. as if IDEA was expecting to be pointed at jarfiles instead of a
directory), and imports from javax.servlet weren't resolved. I tried
adding jarfiles from Tomcat's common/lib directory - while this let me
'make' the web module I still didn't get a webapp tab (or whatever it's
called now) to let me create a run/debug config.
Should I be able to run/debug webapps with Tomcat 5.0 on Linux?
