Docs for configuring Intellij to deploy to remote Tomcat server?

Are there any instructions/guides available to deploy a v7 application to a Tomcat server? In Deployment, I have war settings created:


I have been going to a command line and typing:

$ gradlew buildWar

This puts a war file in build/distributions/war which I then manually copy to my Tomcat webapps directory.

Is there an automated way of doing this with Intellij? In a perfect world, I would like to be able to click Deploy somewhere and have it upload to the Tomcat server (which will automatically install it).

The Intellij docs start talking about creating artifacts, but I have no idea what settings need to be made.



Hi Eric,

At the moment, Studio and our build tasks do not go beyond building WAR or uberJAR. The rest is usually done by shell scripts which run locally or by CI server.

OK, thank you very much.
