# Can I run Tomcat under IDEA ? We are developing web applications using Jakarta Tomcat. Can we run Tomcat under IDEA ? If so, how ?

One way is to define the environment variable TOMCAT_OPTS, setting it equal to "-Xdebug -Xnoagent -Djava.compiler=NONE -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=n,address=5000" You may then connect to tomcat using the remote debugger.
