hello All:

I am trying to set up remote debugging with Tomcat 5.5.9 and Nitrox.
I do not launch Tomcat from within Nitrox.
I run tomcat separately from the bin folder.
I run tomcat5w.

I have created a remote java application under run debug in nitrox to debug a particular java application, but it is not working at all, as soon as I try to lauch this debug, it gives me 'Connection refused' error.

has anyone setup remote debugging, the way, I am trying to do so, from within Nitrox and using Tomcat 5.5.9.

Pls let me know as soon as possible.

Thanks,

You need to tell Tomcat to allow remote debugging. Take a look at catalina.bat/sh, in CATALINA_HOME/bin. Noet the variables JPDA_TRANSPORT and JPDA_ADDRESS - these have to be set for Tomcat to open its remote-debugging access.

I'm a bad boy - instead of setting these (appropriately) on the command line, I hard-code them into catalina.sh like so:Then, teach Nitrox to use 8180 as the debug-port.

Hope this helps!

Hello Grant:

Thanks so much for suggesting this solution, however, I am unable to located catalina.bat/sh in Tomcat 5.5.9, where is this file located, things are different in Tomcat 5.5.9, the steps that you have suggested, which version of Tomcat, have u tried them out with?

If you could kindly guide me to as to where is this bat or sh file located and how to add these variables to the file, I would really appreciate it.

i already know how to ask nitrox to listen at that remote debugging port.

Thanks so much,

Kavita

I'm running 5.5.9 myself (among other versions - maintenance is fun...)

Look in CATALINA_HOME/bin. CATALINA_HOME is what Tomcat calls the directory where you've installed Tomcat - on my machine, for example, I have it in E:/Tomcat5.5. Underneath CATALINA_HOME you'll see /bin, /common, /logs, /server, /shared, /temp, /webapps, and /work.

startup. and catalina.sh/bat are in the /bin directory. They're the way to start Tomcat from the command-line.

If you have it installed to start as a server - then you'll want to add the JPDA_* options to your system environment-variables, so Tomcat sees them when it starts itself.
