Thanks for your answer, but can you provide more details ? How to start the tom cat server in the debug mode ?
What I don't understand is even if the tom cat runs in the debug mode my servlet runs in the tom cat's container so I need to start the tom cat under eclipse in the debug mode. Is this statement correct or I miss something ?
I have always found NetBeans to be far easier and more intuitive thn Eclipse for developing and debugging. It is a single download with the tomcat as part of the installation and once you start in debug mode it feels very intuitive.
