JSP Debugging consuming 100's of MB of RAM

Hi,

I'm attempting to debug a jsp web application. It's a medium sized application - nothing too heavy. When browsing to pages IDEA seems to grind to a halt for about 10 seconds while the page is being compiled. It also starts consuming vast (about 240 MB) of VM heap space.

Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong? Basically, it's unusable in its current form.

Hi Ben,

Does this look like

If so, any additional information is appreciated.

Hmmm,

Thanks for the reply...

I played around with the settings, and it does not seem to be behaving in the same way, but I have lost the ability to debug JSP's. I can set a breakpoint in a bean class and debug fine from there, but if I set a breakpoint in any jsp it gets missed by the debugger.

Does it matter what context path I choose within Tomcat 4.0.6? Do I need to have the IDE set to check JSPs for errors (which it is set to do)? Does it matter where the output path is set?

Finally (!!!) if I dont have Launch Server before Debugger attaches checked, I get an error "Unable to Launch Target JVM"...As a result i have this box checked - is this right?

I'm running build 657, Tomcat 4.0.6, JDK 1.4.1

Thanks,
Ben

I just have the same symptoms. When starting Tomcat in debug mode separately and use remote debugging all works fine.
