How to debug a jar that runs called by a shell (.sh) opened by SSH?

Hi,

My application is packet in a jar (with a main method) that runs called by a shell file (.sh). I access the server folder through SSH.

I'd like to know if there's a way to debug my application in Eclipse.

I put the following options in the sh file
-Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,address=8787,server=y,suspend=n

Also changed Eclipse, creating Remote Java Application entrance in Debug Configurations but it didn't work... does anyone know what to do?

You have to tell the JVM remote debugger what machine the JVM being debugged is on. Looks like you didn't do that.

You may also need a hole punched in the remote machine's firewall(s) in order to access that port. Or an ssh tunnel if that's not possible (and it probably shouldn't be, for security reasons!).

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
