I recently downloaded the nuxeo EP, open source JSF project. Now i want
to import it into Eclipse Ganymede and perform some development and
code modifications. I just imported all the nuxeo folders as java application and the process checked out the repository on my machine.
Now i am having problem to debug into the source code. Can anyone explain me =>
1. How to make a project in eclipse ganymede from the nuxeo source code?
2. How do i start the Debugger console with the Nuxeo project? what
setting to take care of? I want to set breakpoints in the java files
and view the debugger console while application runs in debugging mode.
I am using the following:
1. nuxeo EP v5.2 source installed on linux, the drive is shared on my LAN,
2. Jboss server 4.2.3 GA
installed on linux,
3. jdk 1.5,
4. Eclipse ganymede as my editor installed on windows.
Also it would be a great help if you could tell me the main java file of nuxeo from where the execution begins.
Basically what you want to do is start JBoss AS and deploy the nuxeo WAR file (I assume, but EAR is OK also) to the app server. All of this can be done within Eclipse. And you can set breakpoints within the nuxeo code to do your debugging.
Probably the best way to tackle this is to do it with a simple example first. You might want to install JBoss Tools and then follow one of the many excellent tutorials that appear in the JBoss Tools documentation. You can then apply the same skills and techniques to working with nuxeo.
