Tomcat 4.0.6 plugin

Hi all!


I've looked through the sourcecode of the Tomcat plugin, and I can't
work out how the debugger manages to connect to the vm when you run the
tomcat-plugin in debug mode. I can't find any JPDA-like properties being
set.
How does IDEA connect to Tomcat in debug mode? Telepathy? ;)

(As you may have guessed, I'm working on a appserver plugin - ATG Dynamo
to be specific)

Any help appreciated!

Regards,
Edwin

Tomcat plugin provides correct command line and IDEA does the rest: all JPDA stuff is managed internally.
Does it cause any inconvenience to you? :)

No - I'd say it's very convenient indeed ;)
Reason I asked is I'm having trouble running ATG in debug mode - 'normal'
mode works fine. I sort of suspect it has to do with the huge commandline
ATG requires, but I wanted to make sure the problem wasn't in my pluging
itself.

Thing is, I wrote this 'dummy' startup class that spits out it's command
line and all system properties, and don't see any JPDA stuff there?

Thanks sofar!
Edwin
