I'm working with IDEA on RH Linux 7.3, developing a servlet-based webapp and have deployed it to Tomcat 4.1.12 for debugging. It seems to work fine, debugger launches and connects and everything.
However, I need help understanding where to go from there. You click a button or link in your application, and that causes it to run to the next breakpoint, right? OK, so far so good. Then you click "step into" and, with my application, the blue execution point highlighter moves to a completely unrelated method that isn't even called from the place it was at before. From there, as far as I can tell, the blue highlighter doesn't seem to follow the logic of the program. At one point it stops in the middle of some Javadoc comments. (Is that wrong or is there some reason it would do that which I don't understand?)
Maybe I have it set up wrong. I'm running Tomcat outside of IDEA, and launching it using "./catalina.sh jpda start".
Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.
