Shortcut to make IDE to load modules?

What is the correct workflow when developing a module? At the moment I see only one way:

  1. make changes to module
  2. package module
  3. upload module to openmrs-core application

I guess there should be some short cut to make IDE to load modules when core is starting. The same should allow debugging of module. But I can’t find any documentation on it except Creating Modules deploy-web profile. But this doesn’t look convenient and I have no idea how to debug with this approach. So I guess it must be some other approach allowing debugging and simpler deployment.

Found this “How To Set Up A Development Environment” page from OpenMRS Australia. Haven’t tried yet but it looks exactly what I was looking for.

If your module’s UI is implemented based on the uiframework module, you can set up development mode as described here:
