IntelliJ IDEA 13.1 Web Help

Sometimes you might need to run or debug a certain class with the main() method , without creating a dedicated run configuration. In this case, IntelliJ IDEA provides a temporary run configuration.

Temporary run/debug configuration is added to the list of available configurations and works same way as the permanent run/debug configurations. You can change its settings using the Run/Debug Configuration dialog box and optionally save it as permanent.

To create a temporary run configuration
  1. Select the desired class with the main() method in the Project view or open it in the editor.
  2. On the context menu of the selection, choose Run <name> or Debug <name>. Alternatively, press Ctrl+Shift+F10Ctrl+Shift+F10Ctrl+Shift+F10Ctrl+Shift+F10Ctrl+Shift+F10Ctrl+Shift+F10Ctrl+F9Shift+Alt+F6 or Shift+F6Ctrl+Shift+F10Control Shift RControl Shift F10Control Shift R.
    IntelliJ IDEA creates a temporary configuration, which appears in the Select Run/Debug Configuration drop-down list on the main toolbar when the run or debug session is over.
To save a temporary configuration, do one of the following
  • In the Select Run/Debug Configuration drop-down list on the main toolbar, choose Save <configuration name>.
  • In the Run/Debug Configuration dialog box, click the img button.
  • On the context menu of the editor or Project view, choose Save <configuration name>.
