Description Frank Schönheit 2005-06-10 17:47:15 UTC
from time to time, when writing a Java component for OOo, I want to debug this
component inside Netbeans. Doing so requires settings special JRE parameters
(which I usually have to look up) in Tools|Options|Java.

Sometimes, however, I just want to debug the OOo part. In those cases,
unfortunately, I have to revoke the above-mentioned parameters, or attach the
Netbeans Debugger though I don't want to use it.

It would be useful to have different "sets" of parameters for the JRE, which I
can en- or disable easily, without losing the settings completely.

For instance, I want to create a set named "allow remote debugging", which
contains "-Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,server=y,address=8000", and a
second set not containing any parameters. Switching between those two should be
one mouse click only ...

A workaround: open the java settings file (java*.xml) from your
configuration directory (in your user home dir) in the text editor and prepare
two versions. You can easily setup a script that changes the params before
launching OOo. IMHO this will be faster than any mouse-clicking etc.
