When I was using pre 6951 builds of Idea I was able to debug my Websphere without any changes required to configuration in the admin console. When I upgraded to 6951 my project files were updated to support the new facet structure etc and since then debugging hasn't worked. I'm not claiming that the upgrade to the project structure had anything to do with it but just mentioning that for information about what is different.
Now when I try to debug my server I get the following error when it tries to connect:
Failed to establish connection to the target VM, address: '127.0.0.1:1970', transport: 'socket'
In the Websphere admin console my server is setup to use the default Websphere debugging port of 7777 and debugging is enabled - it has always been setup this way and I have never had to change it. Idea tries to connect at port 1970 which may be a problem but I didn't change it before and this all worked? Does anybody know why it is failing to connect now?
