IntelliJ IDEA 13.1.0 Web Help

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.

Configuration tab

Item Description
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".

Logs tab

Use this tab to specify which log files generated while running or debugging should be displayed in the console, that is, on the dedicated tabs of the Run or Debug tool window.

Item Description
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:
  • Full paths to specific files.
  • Ant patterns that define the range of files to be displayed.
  • Aliases to substitute for full paths or patterns. These aliases are also displayed in the headers of the tabs where the corresponding log files are shown.

    Note

    If a log entry pattern defines more than one file, the tab header shows the name of the file instead of the log entry alias.

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.

Common options

Item Description
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.
Share 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.

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.
