Intellij is the preferred editor of most of the developers on Apache TomEE. It's fast and light and goes out of its way to guess what you're thinking and act accordingly in efforts to save you time and increase your enjoyment. In this regard TomEE and Intellij have a lot in common.
While TomEE works with most IDEs via the Tomcat adapter and this covers WAR files, JetBrains has stepped up to the plate with a TomEE specific adapter to allow deployment of the full range of archives that TomEE supports. The evolving TomEE/Intellij integration sets the pace for all other IDE integrations. Feature requests very welcome! TomEE is to Intellij what GlassFish is to NetBeans and your feedback is a critcal part of that.
We will use one of the existing examples for this demo. Let's import it.
Give a minute while Intellij imports the dependencies.
It's time to run the application. Open "Edit Configurations".
Click the "+" icon and select "TomEE Server" and "Local".
If your server is still not configured, click the "Configure" button and point it to your local TomEE installation.
If you see a warning message like "No artifacts marked for deployment", click the "Fix" button and select one of the options.
You can change the "Application Context".
Now you can run it. Click the "play" button.
Your application is up and running.
