Application Servers Integration

IntelliJ IDEA tightly integrates with the wide variety of popular Web application servers for seamless and efficient debugging and deployment of your Web applications:

  • Apache Tomcat versions 4.0–7.0
  • Bea Systems WebLogic versions 7.0–12.1.1
  • IBM WebSphere versions 5.1–8.0
  • JBoss versions 4.2–7.0.2
  • Geronimo versions 1.0, 1.1, 2.0 and 2.1
  • GlassFish versions 2 and 3
  • Resin 3 and 4
  • Jetty versions 6–8.1

You can use run/debug configurations to specify the debugging and deployment environment settings and that let you create the environment that completely fits your application and its requirements.
