JBoss EAP and WildFly
The integration with JBoss EAP and WildFly provided by the IDE gives you full control over your application and your server, including:
- Connecting to a remote server
- Starting a local instance of a server
- Building artifacts
- Deploying and running an application
- Re-deploying without stopping the server
- Debugging running application
Before you deploy to JBoss EAP or WildFly, make sure you’ve enabled the JBoss Integration plugin and configured the application server.
To enable the plugin, go to Settings → Plugins and select the check-box.
To configure a server, go to Settings → Application Servers and click the Add application server button. The IDE will automatically detect its version and offer you to select which libraries to add to the dependencies when the server is used in the project.
For more details on how to manage application servers, configure artifacts and run/debug Java EE applications refer to the Application Servers tutorial.

IntelliJ IDEA will automatically detect Maven’s pom.xml file and configure the project dependencies correspondingly.
To be able to deploy your application to OpenShift you need an OpenShift run configuration; to create one go to Edit configurations... and click Add run configuration button.
Now you can deploy/debug your OpenShift application simply by clicking the Run/Debug buttons on the toolbar.
For more details on how to run and debug your OpenShift application watch this video.
