Today I tried to remotely debug the Apache ODE source using Apache Tomcat 7 and Intellij IDEA. If you are interested in remotely debug, follow this tutorial http://isharapremadasa.blogspot.com/2011/09/how-to-debug-apache-ode-with-apache.html.
I tried it in windows 7. But i was unable to halt the Tomcat's the catalina script at ODE deployment. So i tried to set following windows environment variables (given by IDEA, and modified as suspend=y) for JAVA_OPTS using,
set JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=y,address=8000
and then tried to run catalina script by running,
catalina.bat jpda run
Then I got this;
ERROR: Cannot load this JVM TI agent twice, check your java command line for duplicate jdwp options. Error occurred during initialization of VM agent library failed to init: jdwp
Why ? and Solution
Then I googled about this problem and found the error: when i am going to define both JPDA and environment variables at ones, it cause to generate two instance of debugger and that is not possible. By removing one of them will solve the problem.
So I tried it again removing jpda parameter, and finally I was able to halt the catalina script without ODE deployment.
JPDA stands for The Java Platform Debugger Architecture. which is a collection of APIs to debug Java code. (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JPDA )
