Subject Re: debug ANT
Date Thu, 03 Feb 2005 17:38:29 GMT
Likely better to ask these questions in an Eclipse based forum (such as 
the eclipse.platform newsgroup)

On the JRE tab for your Ant launch configuration specify the following VM 
arguments in the VM arguments text pane:
-Xdebug -Xnoagent -Djava.compiler=NONE 

Once you launch this Ant build, it will suspend and wait for a remote 
debug attach.
Run>Debug...>Remote Java Application>New>Debug

You may need to adjust the source lookup path as required but this will 
get you started.
