    Can't suspend a breakpoint while debugging

    Anthon Ranullo Newbie

      Hi, I did my homework but just too helpless.. so I'm doing the last resort.

      Specs:

      Eclipse 3.4.0 Ganymede
      JBossAS-Tools-1.1.2.GA
      jboss-4.2.3.GA

      My Problem:

      My breakpoint on my translated JSP files (e.g. index_jsp.java) were always ignored by eclipse whenever I try visiting the JSP concerned.

      What I have done:

      Before I established a debugging environment, I added a virtual folder to my "Dynamic Web" eclipse project that links to the folder where the JBoss dumps in the translated JSP files. (e.g. %JBOSS_HOME%\server\default\work\jboss.web\localhost\MyProject)

      I managed to establish a debugging environment by using two methods:
      1. Using "debug on server" provided by jbossAs tools
      2. Debugging as "Remote Java Application" using

      JAVA_OPTS=-Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,address=8787,server=y,suspend=y %JAVA_OPTS%

      provided on the run.bat

      Everything looks fine but my breakpoints on my translated JSP files were being ignored. I can set breakpoints on JSP itself (non scriptless) and have my VM suspend at that breakpoint. But I have scriptless JSP file so it would be impossible to set breakpoints on that, so I set the breakpoints on translated JSP file. Unfortunately VM do not suppend on breakpoints I have set on the translated JSP files.

      Any help will save this dude from insanity. Thanks!
