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 "$@"

Adobe BrowserLab

How many times have you written some javascript code or css stylesheets, and it looks and works great in your browser but sucks ass in another?

Adobe BrowserLab promises that to help you by “Accurately preview web pages across multiple browsers and operating systems, navigate links, and use diagnostic tools to optimize websites efficiently.”

I’ve been meaning to try it out. I’ll come back with more interesting things to say when I do, or maybe you’ll get a chance to use it first and tell me about it…
