IntelliJ IDEA 2017.1 Help

Creating and Configuring Web Application Elements

This feature is supported in the Ultimate edition only.

The elements and deployment settings of a Web application are defined in the Web module deployment descriptor web.xml, which is created automatically when you enable Web application support for a module.

For the sake of consistency with the User Interface, the module deployment descriptors are also referred to as Assembly Descriptors.

You can use the editor and edit the source code using the IntelliJ IDEA coding assistance.

Web modules are populated with elements similarly, according to the common basic procedure. For element-specific details, refer to the relevant topics in this part:
