Seems to me that you should be able to run your WebStart application as a plain old Java application, which means you could use Eclipse's regular debugging methods. That's what I used to do when I wrote WebStart apps.

Paul - Thank you for your reply. Can you please elaborate more on debugging a plain old java application in eclipse. In my case i want to be able to switch to eclipse and stop at a break point when i enter some input values on a window pane and hit create project in my webstart app. Please advise.
I'm sorry, but I'm sure you didn't really mean to ask me to take the time to write a tutorial about how to debug Java applications in Eclipse for you, right? I'm sure you can find one on the Internet much faster than waiting for me to write one for you.
And besides, you already alluded to "setting breakpoints". There isn't much more to be said -- you just need to find the "Debug" button in Eclipse and you're pretty much done.
Your buns are mine! But you can have this tiny ad:
