RAD ignores my break points

I am using RAD and WAS and my break points are ignored by RAD most of the times. What I do is I restart the server and sometimes my breakpoints start to work again but sometimes it takes a few restarts. It is very time consuming. Does anyone recognize this problem?

Linda,
Is the server started in debug mode?

Yes it is! The problem is not that simple.

Still good to rule out the obvious .

The only other time I've seen that behavior is if I kill a thread. The server then doesn't know to go back into debug mode until I restart.

Hello Linda -

I faced this issue couple of times. So what I did was asure that only single java.exe prcocess is started. In other words when we start or restart server we should make sure that all java.exe process are killed or doesnt exist.

For this we edited startServer.bat with taskkill /F /IM "java.exe"]. Secondly from RAD into CONSOLE prespective assure that no hidden process is running. We notice that some times when server is OFF still into CONSOLE we see server process live...!!! So clickon RED button on it which assure that hidden process is no longer exist.

HOPE THESE HELP...

Regards... Devendra
