This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I don't know where to begin with this quite, but sometimes in Eclipse 3.4.2 I'm quite sure to set breakpoints, and start my instance of "Tomcat v6.0 Server at localhost "in debugging mode , but the breakpoints don't stop anything, even as I see the logger-based message do their thing.
Now, previously it was the case that breakpoints would work for a while, and then stop as the web app (JSF,SPring,Hibernate) continued along... I thought maybe it was once an exception was thrown , the debugger would be disconnected, but I've cleaned up a few things in the boot process (making sure the login bean was serializable, etc) and still... the break points don't stop the flow.
I know this is kind of a vague description, but I don't know what's useful to talk about, what could possibly be going wrong.... any thoughts on what generally causes non-disable breakpoints not to work (besides accidentally hitting run instead of debug...)
