Platform :Win2000 Jdk 1.5 Eclipse 3.02 Tomcat 4.1

When I try to debug the application with eclipse on Tomcat server started with jpda start ,I get 'Failed to connect to remote VM .Connection refused'
Have checked these options
1.Changed Catalina.bat for dt_socket and 8000 (JPDA_TRANSPORT and JPDA_ADDRESS)
2.Changed the JVM option in eclipse for -server -Xdebug and starting tomcat within eclipse via the tomcat plugin

Use the NETSTAT command to make sure that the app is open for debugging on port 8000.

Also, you should generally set the flag that causes the app to pause on startup. If your app comes up, runs and terminates before you can connect the debugger you'll have this problem.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
