I found a need to debug JBoss with Eclipse. A search on google led me to ths page. I had to tweak a bit to get my local instance to work.
For example, I had to change the quote character from ” to “.
After that, JBOSS was able to load the new parameters correctly.
The post also have slightly different UI screen than what I see on my version of Eclipse. I did the following:
- Go to Run –> Debug Configurations … in the menu
- Rick click on Remote Java Application and choose New
- Choose the project of your choice. Change the address to 8787 to match the parameter specified for JBoss earlier. Change host name if necessary.
- Click Apply and then Debug
I was able to connect to the server and start debug the application.
