IDEA 7 and JSP debugging

How can I debug JSPs? When I try to create a breakpoint in a JSP In IntelliJ IDEA version 6 and 7 it displays a red dot with an X in it -- I think this signifies an invalid breakpoint. When I run the code it does not break.

Perhaps I am not connecting properly? I run my WebLogic 9.2 server with JVM debugging enabled on the java command-line. My IntelliJ Run Configuration is a "Remote" type and I connect using shared memory or a socket.

I've been a happy customer of IntelliJ since version 4! Keep up the good work!

Any ideas?

Hello John,

As far as I understand, you need to use a run configuration of type WebLogic rather than a generic Remote run configuration.
