remote debugging unusable

When remote debugging on a local machine (e.g. attaching to a local Weblogic server) all is well. When remote debugging on a different machine it slows considerably to the point it is unusable. Sometimes it never comes back and we have to disconnect. Tried using Eclipse to do the same thing with the same code and it is much faster. Might be enough for some on our team to switch.

Thoughts?

Hello Jason,

ChecK if you set a method breakpoint.

When remote debugging on a local machine (e.g. attaching to a local
Weblogic server) all is well. When remote debugging on a different
machine it slows considerably to the point it is unusable. Sometimes
it never comes back and we have to disconnect. Tried using Eclipse to
do the same thing with the same code and it is much faster. Might be
enough for some on our team to switch.

Thoughts?

There are method breakpoints. Why would that matter?

They slow down execution some 10 times

Ok. But the usefulness of remote debugging is so that I can break at a particular place in code and evaluate vars, right? Help me if I'm missing something.

Thanks for the replies.
