Debugging in Websphere 6

Hey Folks!
I'm using 7.0M1a and the debugger has real difficulties. I'm sort of getting it running and using the remote debugger but it crashes often and has a tough time connecting. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks!

I am using it and I don't see any problems using remote debugging feature as mentioned here http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/documentation/howto_02.html

I followed the directions exactly (at least as close as I can given that 6 and 7 are different than 5). Now the debugger goes on but the application keeps starting and stopping. Eventually it disconnects I assume because the application crashes. I will try to add the line to the idea.exe.vmoptions file and see if that fixes it.

I am not sure about this, in my vm options I add this as per the document

-Didea.debugger.keep.temp.objects=false

I've done that now and it seems to have made difference in terms of being much more performant but it is still very unstable. It seems that when the application throws an exception intellij freezes and locks up the app. It's very frustrating as I really want to be able to get rid of IBMs crappy tool and switch to intellij full time.

Should we open an issue? Any thoughts on this?
