Resin 3.1 debugging under IDEA 8.0!?

Dead-end with Resin Plugin for IDEA


I just updated the Resin plugin (again) for IDEA 8.0.1.  I can configure an instance of the Resin appserver.  But when I go to set up a Run/Debug configuration using Resin, it does not show up as one of the configuration options.  (It used to under IDEA 7.0.)


I've tried this a number of ways and Resin does not appear as a Run/Debug configuration option.


There is at least one thread on the Resin Plugin for IDEA page https://sourceforge.net/projects/idearesinplugin/ on SourceForge.  For example: "Resin plugin does not show up in IDEA 8.0" https://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=2807107&forum_id=353646

I'd like to know the following...

Work-around: JSR45.  Viable option with Resin?

Are others using the JSR45 option on that same Run/Debug menu to connect to a local instance of Resin?


When I try to configure a JSR45 instance, I cannot get past the JSP Packaging option. It wants one.  There is no help doc explaining what is expected for this value.  And leaving it out is not an option (unfortunately, as we are using Freemarker, not JSP).

Of course, the alternative is to just use Eclipse which links up with Resin without any problem, but would that be any fun?!

Figured out the answer myself.

  • Fire up Resin instance with the following options:

-Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=n,address=5005

  • Create a Remote config and start it
  • Set your breakpoints
  • Start running your test pages

Which, btw, is very similar to how you attach to Resin using Eclipse.  (But I probably shouldn't mention the "E" word here! )

Hello Peter,

Please download IntelliJ IDEA 8.1 Release Candidate from http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/IDEADEV/Diana+EAP
It includes a bundled and supported Resin plugin, with a number of important
fixes compared to the latest non-bundled version.
