Main tasks related to working with application servers

Here are main tasks related to working with application servers in IntelliJ IDEA.

  1. Download and install the server that you are going to use. Even if you are going to use a remote server (i.e. one running on a different computer), the same server version must be installed locally.

  2. Make sure that the necessary server integration plugin or plugins are enabled in IntelliJ IDEA. See Enable application server integration plugins.

  3. Define the server in IntelliJ IDEA. See Configure and manage application server integration.

  4. Create an artifact configuration for your application.

  5. Create a run/debug configuration for your server. See Creating a server run/debug configuration.

  6. Start the server run/debug configuration to run or debug your application. See Starting a server run/debug configuration.
