GWT Debugging Problem

Hi ,
I have been using GWT from last 3-4 months. One of the problem I faced a lot initially was of debugging.
I was able to debug the code in development mode for GWT1.7, but for GWT2.0 it didn't allowed me to debug.
The breakpoint was always ignored. So we have to move back to GWT1.7.
Is there any way to debug the code in GWT2.0 and above?

Thanks in advance

Hi, I have GWT 2 and the debugging is working fine. try to download the browser plugins to another browser (firefox - chrome - ie) or download the gwt eclipse plugin last version.

I'll have to point out that you can debug on Linux; there's a Firefox plugin... but no Chrome one, despite Google's involvement!

To be honest, for a while there were problems with the plugin, which would work only with Firefox 3.5, but yesterday I checked it out with 3.6.8, and it worked fine.

Thanks for the question!

Great fan of Open Source, Linux, and web development with GWT; all of these come together for my ESSENTIAL GWT book!
I agree. Here's the link:
