Setting up Tomcat for debugging

Short PSA. If you want to set up Tomcat for debugging, set up JPDA.

To do so, simply open the startup.sh file, which is somewhere in TOMCAT/bin folder.

Add these two lines near the top

export JPDA_ADDRESS=7000
export JPDA_TRANSPORT=dt_socket

Then modify the exec line (usually the last line in the file) from this:

exec "$PRGDIR"/"$EXECUTABLE" start "$@"

to this

exec "$PRGDIR"/"$EXECUTABLE" jpda start "$@"
