As it’s surprising hard to start from scratch to create a simple web project using jsp running on tomcat with IntelliJ, this post intends to leave a note for this boiler process.
Install Tomcat 7 on Mac (10.9.2)
1 2 3 4
Test it in http://localhost:8080/ to see if it works.
$ sh shutdown.sh
$TOMCAT_DIR/conf/tomcat-users.xml to get admin access:
1 2 3
And restart the tomcat to gain the access with new credential.
Roles: “You can find the role names in the web.xml file of the Manager web application. The available roles are:”
manager-gui — Access to the HTML interface.
manager-status — Access to the “Server Status” page only.
manager-script — Access to the tools-friendly plain text interface that is described in this document, and to the “Server Status” page.
manager-jmx — Access to JMX proxy interface and to the “Server Status” page.
Add tomcat7 to IntelliJ
Add this as tomcat home directory /usr/local/Cellar/tomcat/ or the your specific link form your settings.
