when trying to DEBUG from within Eclipse - I asume that you mean that you are starting JBoss using JBoss-IDE.
Is JBoss being started using a JRE or SDK, it must be started using a SDK otherwise it will not be possible to compile the jsp pages.
You are correct! I am using the JBoss-IDE.
It sounds reasonable that I need a compiler in order to compile :-)
I have tried to change the configuration of the startup of JBoss to use the SDK...but to no luck.
How can I accomplish this?
Do I need to provide command line argument to JBoss when launching from within JBoss-IDE (that shows where to find a compiler)?
Make sure that your Eclipse is running on SDK and not on JRE.
Go to Windows -> Preferences -> Java -> Installed JREs.
I was afraid that someone was going to say that (since that was the first thing I tried...)
I am still having the orginal problem...
When I look att eclipse and pointing to my Java SDK directory the environment recursivley looks for JRE:s and reference those...I can´t see that the acutal complier is being used though (/bin) directory...
Am I being clueless here or what??
