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


Once I run "mvnDebug tomcat7:run -pl *-server -am -Denv=dev" from a command line, I just got the following message:
                                           Listening for transport dt_socket at address: 8000

http://localhost:8080/ is not accessible. I cannot figure it out how to debug my gwt application using Maven.

I used Thomas Broyer GWT Maven Plugin to create a maven GWT project from a command and imported into Eclipse 4.6. I can run Jetty and Tomcat and application works fine. But I want to debug server side code. I cannot figure out how to debug server side code. I set up a break point in server side code, but it doesn't stop there.

With their respective Maven plugins, Tomcat and Jetty run in the Maven process, so you "just" run Maven in debug mode (either "mvnDebug tomcat7:run" instead of "mvn tomcat7:run"; or "Debug as… → Maven…" from within Eclipse, instead of "Run as… → Maven…")
You can also run the webapp using Eclipse WTP (or whatever it's called) by defining a "Server", without using Maven in this case.
