Hi, im trying to start tomcat 5.5 in debug mode, im using eclipse and want to debug a small web app.

I modified startup.bat and catalina.bat but there's something wrong,
here's the lines i modified:

1 - startup.bat:
call "%EXECUTABLE%" jpda start %CMD_LINE_ARGS%

2 - catalina.bat
set JPDA_TRANSPORT=dt_socket

When i run startup.bat it wont start but if i remove jpda from it it works ok, what did i miss?

Maybe i need to add somrthing more but i cant figure it out, can you help me??

Sounds like a question for the tomcat forum.
