I downloaded javarebel.jar and imported it into my project library (in Eclipse). Before setting the JAVA_OPTS in the Tomcat console, do I need to do anything else? Can anyone please direct me to some form of documentation on how to use the rebel plugin with Eclipse?
General outline. *) Download archive and extract to somewhere *) Copy javarebel.jar to a location that is easily referencable (for example c:\javarebel.jar on Windows or /home/john/javarebel.jar on Linux) *) Add the necessary java options "-noverify -javaagent:c:\javarebel.jar" to the startup of the container *) You are done
No need to import the JAR to your project library. Think of it as not a project specific jar but more of a container specific jar.
