Running Vertx inside IntelliJ

I’ve recently started looking at the Vertx framework and runtime.

I followed the instructions here on setting up a base vertx application using the maven archetype which works fine.

However I prefer to run my applications from within IntelliJ for ease of debugging and runtime code replacement.

To start with I created the IntelliJ project using the maven command line

$ mvn idea:idea

Then to actually run the project from within IntelliJ I created the following run configuration

You should then be able to run your application from within IntelliJ using the standard Run/Debug tools
