We recommend that you use this checkbox if you have dependent modules in your project.
By default, this checkbox is not selected. In this case, classes of dependent modules are searched in .jar files in a Maven local repository. If you select this checkbox, the classes of the dependent modules will be searched in the module compilation output. In this case, each time you make changes to the dependent module, you don't need to deploy them into a local repository.

This check box is not available when editing the run/debug configuration defaults.
|Single instance only||If this check box is selected, this run/debug configuration cannot be launched more than once. |
Every time a new run/debug configuration is launched, IntelliJ IDEA checks the presence of the other instances of the same run/debug configuration, and displays a confirmation dialog box. If you click OK in the confirmation dialog box, the first instance of the runner will be stopped, and the next one will take its place.
This makes sense when the usage of certain resources can cause conflicts, or when launching two run/debug configurations of the same type consumes too much of the CPU and memory resources.
If this check box is not selected, it is possible to launch as many instances of the runner as required. So doing, each runner will start in its own tab of the Run tool window.
|Before launch||Specify which tasks must be performed before applying the run/debug configuration. The specified tasks are performed in the order they appear in the list. |
