I have choosed idea as my ide, but till now i have used ant to make a build file. Manually i deployed it in server, then start the server.
But As we know that, ide provide there own way to deploy web-app. like eclipse , if you select the project and clicked the right mouse button , then choose Run as... to run your application.
so, please any one tell me, if i have written all the code, but i am not using ant + tomcat is configured(by the way, i am using tomcat 6.0) then what is the step to deploy the application and also run it. please give information , with snapshots if it is possible and try to describe the detail terms like artifacts etc..
