What are you trying to achieve? If you want to develop Tomcat source 
code, i.e. debug/develop code that will be a part of the Tomcat code 
base, then as Violeta suggested, you could use the ant command (or 
simply import Tomcat source code into Idea and build/run the code via 
command line).

If you want to develop apps for Tomcat, then you don't need Tomcat's 
source code. In such a case, you'll be better served by searching for 
specific technology, for example getting started with Servlets, and 
using Tomcat as the container for your code.
