Hi All,
Anyone knows how to configure Jakarta-Tomcat 5.x with IntelliJ IDEA 4.5?

Playing with IntelliJ, I found that Eclipse is more intuitive than IntelliJ. What do you think. I can't even figure out how to create a servlet and jsp in IntelliJ and there're not a whole lot of articlis no How-To for intelliJ.

thanks.

IntelliJ is great if your company (or you) is willing to pay for it.

What is it exactly that you want to configure?

I can't even figure out how to create a servlet and jsp in IntelliJ and there're not a whole lot of articlis no How-To for intelliJ.


Why would you need an IDE to help you out creating anything with it? Nor servlets nor JSPs are that complex that you should have problems with them and that is something you should know before you even start working with any IDE.

Setting up Tomcat in IDEA 4.5 is as easy as going to Settings | IDE | Application Servers and Add Tomcat Server.

Creating servlets or JSPs is as simple as creating a Web module, then New | Servlet, or New | JSP depending on your context. You can also just as easily create filters.

I like Eclipse a lot, and it keeps getting better, but personally I don't find it at all intuitive. Admittedly it's not hard once someone shows you, or you figure it out yourself, but not intuitive. As always, YMMV.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
