Generating Crash Dump in WSAD

HI evryone

I am facing some problems in Web Studio Application Developer 5.1.2, when I start my server in debug mode.., the system generates a Crash Dump, and the server stops..

Is there any way to fix this problem in WSAD(Web Studio Application Developer)?

WAS server debug mode is sometimes very unstable. There's no simple fix since your description was pretty vague but you might want to try installing any IBM fix packs for your particular version of both WSAD/WAS.

Also, try starting your server in debug mode outside of WSAD (using WSADMIN) then connecting with WSAD using a Remote Java Application call supported in the WSAD debug menu.

How can you 'start the server in debug mode' without admin rights to the server? You lost me.

I am not able to find the IBM fix packs for the crash dump.

Let me know the source for any patch available.

We once had something similar where there were too many tags in a jsp for debug mode to handle. It was weird. We removed some of the tags to make it work.

I have exactly the same problem when running no debug mode.

Here it is what I got.

Hi, I got exactly same issue when I run the application in debug mode.

Solution :

In WAS admin console >servers >application server. Then click on Server1 > Process Defintition>Java Virtual Machine. Here you see all general properties and increase Initial Heap Size =256 and Maximum Heap Size = 512. THis fix the above problem.

Url for local host: http://localhost:7090/admin/secure/ ( note: port number may be different depends on your configuration)

I agree. Here's the link:
