Subject RE: WTP/Eclipse questions/defects

I read your wiki page on how to develop Geronimo within eclipse which was
very helpful.  However, I haven't been able to debug the Geronimo plugin
within eclipse.   Is there any document on how to that, similar as the wiki
page for developing Geronimo?   I think this will be very useful for anyone
who wants to help out with the Geronimo plugin.

Just like you would hunt down a problem in G or any other project.   
Use the debugger.  Eclipse/WTP provides sdk distributions so all the  
source is available.  You can put breakpoints in the geronimo code to  
see the method call hierarchy in the debug view in Eclipse to get an  
understanding of who calls what.

Another common practice is to verify problems against other server  
adapters.  This would be a good indication that the bug is in WTP and  
not the implementation of a given adapter.  Then you can use the  
debugger to evaluate further.
