Using eclipse wtp I think you only have to start the server in debug mode. At least it works for me.
I'm starting and stopping the jboss server for every change in the
code and/or every facelet xhtml definitions, this seems a horribble overkill
but as I try to skip stopserver-erase all I keep the old problem complaint every
is there any way to speed up development ???
JBoss IDE or Exadel studio or even plain Eclipse WTP or Netbeans allows you to debug code running in the JBoss server from inside your IDE.
I use this every day, as do most other people here!
