Tomcat server & Intellij IDEA


as anybody ever had to deal with deploying an exploded war on a tomcat server running in a Docker container from Intellij IDEA 15?

I can’t setup the “Tomcat Remote” build configuration when the server is located in a Docker container. I successfully connect to Tomcat via the JMX port but the deploy always fails as it seems to look for the exploded war in the host machine instead of the one in the Docker volume. Regular deployment by copying the exploded war in the volume manually and not from Intellij works.

I recongize this is more of a Intellij related question but I reckoned some of you might have encountered the same problem.
