A small post with screenshots to show how to run a TomEE server in main IDEs (Intellij IDEA, Eclipse, Netbeans).
This article only uses Tomcat connectors (since that’s the TomEE philosophy).
Once you got a web project simply go to WTP, add a new server, select a Tomcat 7 server, add your project to the server and run it.
Note: here the logs are red because WTP doesn’t use the logging.properties in conf/ by default. Here is the tip to make it working as expected: http://openejb.apache.org/tomee-logging-in-eclipse.html
The idea here is the same, add a new Tomcat server, set the catalina home and add your application (use war-exploded, otherwise TomEE will extract it itself ;)):
First go to services tab, add a new Tomcat server, configure the catalina home and a user with the manager-gui permission and then run your application, it will ask you for a server, select the created one and here we are :).
