I have a java application running on linux machine. I run the java application using the following:
java myapp -Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:server=y,transport=dt_socket,address=4000, suspend=n
I have opened port 4000 for TCP on this Linux machine. I use eclipse from Windows XP machine and try to connect to this application. I have opened the port in windows also.
Both machines are on the LAN but I can’t seem to connect the debugger to the Java application. What am I doing wrong?
Edit: I noticed that some people are cutting and pasting the invocation here. The answer I originally gave was relevant for the OP only. Here’s a more modern invocation style (including using the more conventional port of 8000):
java -agentlib:jdwp=transport=dt_socket,server=y,address=8000,suspend=n <other arguments>
Original answer follows.
java -Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:server=y,transport=dt_socket,address=4000,suspend=n myapp
Two points here:
- No spaces in the
- Options come before the class name. Any arguments you have after the class name are arguments to your program!
