Description fassev 2004-03-22 19:31:12 UTC
NetBeans 3.6 (Beta and RC 1): When debugging a 
J2EE application within a Tomcat, the debugging 
is enabled too late, so the start process of the 
Tomcat server, including the loading of server 
classes, predefined modules or extenssions etc. 
cannot be debugged. All breakpoints are ignored 
during the start process. Just after the 
deployment process is finished, the debugging is 
enabled and IDE steps into the break points as 

With NetBeans 3.5x it is possible to debug the 
start of Tomcat 4.x.
Comment 1 Martin Grebac 2004-03-23 08:13:42 UTC
 Well, in 3.5 it worked only with a luck - IDE was trying to attach to
the server in some increasing time intervals, so some code could have
been easily missed during the start, too. More, the approach lead to
connection errors if tomcat has been starting longer than we expected.
 So, in promoB (3.6) we are waiting for the server to start first as
we don't have an option of listening connectors yet. 
 Listening connectors support will be added in promoD, and we'll use
them to be able to fulfill your request and handle debugging of server
startup correctly.

Please, could You tell, what is the target "promo-D" of NetBeans?
Comment 3 Marek Fukala 2004-03-23 12:50:14 UTC
The Promo-D is a code name for the next netbeans release. It is a
direct successor of netbeans 3.6 (Promo-B) and its version will be
very likely 4.0.
Comment 4 Martin Grebac 2004-04-21 09:30:47 UTC
this is not a defining feature

corner case, decreasing priority to P3 (approved by QE).

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.
