IntelliJ IDEA 15.0 Help

Application Servers tool window

View | Tool Windows | Application Servers

For this tool window to be available, there must be a server run/debug configuration in your project, or a cloud user account must be registered in IntelliJ IDEA.


The Application Servers tool window lets you manage your applications on application servers and cloud platforms. You can start and stop server run/debug configurations and connect to cloud platforms, deploy and undeploy your application artifacts as well as perform other, associated tasks.

By installing the Docker integration plugin you can add functions for working with Docker images and containers.

ApplicationServersToolWindow

All the available functions are accessed by means of the toolbar icons and context menu commands.
