Use this dialog to create a run/debug configuration to be used for remote running or debugging processes (e.g. applications, servlets, plugin applets). Remote running/debugging enables you to connect to a running JVM.
The dialog box consists of the following tabs:
Click here for the description of the options that are common for all run/debug configurations.
|Command line arguments||These read-only fields show the command-line arguments to be used for running a remote JVM. IntelliJ IDEA suggests two arguments, depending on the JDK version used.|
|Transport: Socket||If the Socket transport is selected, specify host where the remote process is running and to which the debugger will connect. Specify also the port on remote host to which the debugger should connect.|
|Transport: Shared Memory||Having selected Shared memory transport, specify the shared memory address in the text field. This kind of transport is available for Windows only.|
|Debugger mode: Attach||Select this radio button is you want the debugger to connect to a running remote JVM.|
|Debugger mode: Listen||Select this radio button is you want the debugger to run as a server for remote JVM's which will connect to it to perform debugging. In this case the Host field will be disabled (if the Socket transport is selected). The Port value is considered as a port at which the debugger-"server" will listen to connections from the debugger-"clients".|
|Is Active||Select check boxes in this column to have the log entries displayed in the corresponding tabs in the Run tool window or Debug tool window.|
|Log File Entry||The read-only fields in this column list the log files to show. The list can contain:
|Skip Content||Select this check box to have the previous content of the selected log skipped.|
|Save console output to file||Select this check box to save the console output to the specified location. Type the path manually, or click the browse button and point to the desired location in the dialog that opens.|
|Show console when standard out changes||Select this check box to activate output console and bring it forward, if associated process writes to Standard.out.|
|Show console when standard error changes||Select this check box to activate output console and bring it forward, if associated process writes to Standard.err.|
|Click this button to open the Edit Log Files Aliases dialog where you can select a new log entry and specify an alias for it.|
|Click this button to edit the properties of the selected log file entry in the Edit Log Files Aliases dialog.|

The order of configurations or folders in the list defines the order, in which configurations appear in the Run/Debug drop-down list on the main toolbar.

If one or more run/debug configurations have the focus, then the selected run/debug configurations are automatically moved to the newly created folder. If only a category has the focus, then an empty folder is created.
Move run/debug configurations to a folder using drag-and-drop, or buttons.
|Name||In this text box, specify the name of the current run/debug configuration. This field does not appear for the default run/debug configurations.|
|Defaults||This node in the left-hand pane of the dialog box contains the default run/debug configuration settings. Select the desired configuration to change its default settings in the right-hand pane. The defaults are applied to all newly created run/debug configurations.|
|Temporary configurations limit||Specify here the maximum number of temporary configurations to be stored and shown in the Select Run/Debug Configuration drop-down list.|
Select this check box to make the run/debug configuration available to other team members.
If the directory-based project format is used, the settings for a run/debug configuration are stored in a separate xml file in the .idea\runConfigurations folder if the run/debug configuration is shared and in the .idea\workspace.xml file otherwise.
If the file-based format is used, the settings are stored in the .ipr file for shared configurations or in the .iws file for the ones that are not shared.
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 make sense, when 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 should be carried out before starting the run/debug configuration.
The specified tasks are performed in the order that they appear in the list.
