Debugging web app in IntelliJ 4.5.4

Hi,

I am trying to debug a web app through IntelliJ. I am using Tomcat 5.5.9. IntelliJ´s debug settings use a startup and shutdown script, which by default is catalina.bat. I don´t have a catalina.bat file, just tomcat5.exe to run tomcat as a windows service (which I am having problems with).

C:\apache\tomcat_5_5_9\bin\tomcat5.exe starts the server ok.

C:\apache\tomcat_5_5_9\bin\tomcat5.exe //SS//Tomcat5 throws a path not found error, which leaves the port 8080 listening (I can´t connect again).

Does anyone know what the correct script settings would be?

Also, when tomcat starts up, IntelliJ gives me an error.
It can´t connect to the VM on the debug port. The debugger doesn´t stop on any break points.

Does anyone have an idea about this?

Thank you for any help,

William

Hello William,

I am trying to debug a web app through IntelliJ. I am using Tomcat
5.5.9.
IntelliJ?s debug settings use a startup and shutdown script, which by
def
ault is catalina.bat. I don?t have a catalina.bat file, just
tomcat5.exe
to run tomcat as a windows service (which I am having problems with).
C:\apache\tomcat 5 5 9\bin\tomcat5.exe starts the server ok.

C:\apache\tomcat 5 5 9\bin\tomcat5.exe //SS//Tomcat5 throws a path not
foun d error, which leaves the port 8080 listening (I can?t connect
again).

Does anyone know what the correct script settings would be?


You have to use zipped Tomcat distribution, it contains the necessary batch
startup scripts. Also take a look at this guide: ftp://intellij.net/pub/.idea/TomcatTutorial/TomcatJspDebug.zip
.

Please describe in detail what problems you have when following the tutorial
I suggested.
It's recommended to write about such problems to support instead of the newsgroups,
you can contact me at support@jetbrains.com with the detailed description
of your problem, but make sure you've read the tutorial first.
