Re: How to debug server side code in Thomas Broyer GWT Maven Plugin


I am not very familiar with Maven in Eclipse. I use Eclipse 4.6. Once I run "Debug as… → Maven", I see there are a lot of choices such as 
Maven build
Maven build...
Maven clean
Maven generate-sources
Maven install
Maven test.

I cannot figure it out how. Can you give me step-to-step instruction? I am very familiar with how to debug GWT application not using Maven.

This tells you on which port you'll attach the Java debugger. From Eclipse, you then create a debug launcher for a "remote application" and select the dt_socket transport and 8000 port. Once the Java debugger is connected, the execution is resumed.
It's actually easier to do a "Debug as… → Maven…" in Eclipse.
