i have an third party application which has lot of servlets and jsp . wanted to debug that by putting breakpoints.usually how de we know that , for particular request , the request is being processed by particular java classes and jsp , so that i can put breakpoints in respective files. i am thinking to go through the code , before setting the breakpoints to know where to put them. but i feel this is not efficient way to do( as it is a very big application). can you please suggest me if there is any better way to do this ?
thanks in advance

Check the WEB-INF/web.xml file. It contains the mappings for requests to particular servlets (of course, the application might only have one dispatcher servlet, in which case web.xml won't be much help to you).
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
