Developing Web Applications with WebStorm IDE

Hey guys,

in the past I developed allready some UI5 Apps with eclipse, but due to the functionality of WebStorm I decided to switch the IDE. I allready read the nice document configuring-jetbrains-webstorm-for-ui5-development of @Robin van het Hof. But my problem is now that I want to deploy the project on a tomcat server. So either I didn'f find any functionality in the IDE or there is none. I want to have the same functionality than with eclipse, so that when I change code in a file within the project, the IDE automatically updates the files on the server. A friend of mine told me to create and deploy the project with eclipse and to do the coding with WebStorm. But how or where do I store my project so that it updates the files on the tomcat.

The only thing that I want is to create and develop applications with WebStorm like I did it with eclipse. Is there any work-around to implement the same functionalities like the SAPUI5 DevKit for eclipse?

Kind regards,



Well, what I do is following

sometime i have to restart tomcat (if i change web.xml or something) but generally this way it works.
