This page last changed on Jan 16, 2009 by Kees de Kooter

Modify the file ${CATALINA_HOME}/bin/catalina.bat or ${CATALINA_HOME}/bin/catalina.bat, depending on the platform. Modify the following lines:

set JPDA_TRANSPORT=dt_socket

You can now start tomcat in debug mode by running catalina jpda start. From your IDE of choice you can now connect a debugging session to port 8000.
