Ven,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

This article explains how to do remote debugging nicely - with screenshots. The article is about WebSphere 7, but it is virtually the same in WebSphere 8.

Obviously, one shouldn't do this on a production server. It doesn't sound like you are doing that so this approach should work for you.

Eclipse comes in several "spins". You'll want the J2EE spin, as it has the extra plugins needed to launch and communicate with J2EE/JEE servers such as WebSphere.

WAS, like all of the common J(2)EE servers handles remote debugging just like any other JVM-based application does. The JVM opens a debugging port when it's launched, and the IDE and JVM talk "java debugging language" over it.


An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
