Subject Re: Debugging a mojo with eclipse?
Date Wed, 20 Jan 2010 21:25:32 GMT
Unless I'm missing something, it's pretty simple. Load up the plugin 
project into eclipse (I use m2eclipse for this, either via the import 
existing project path or by importing from the repository using groupId, 
artifactId, version, etc.). Once you have the plugin source in front of 
you, set a few breakpoints, then drop out to a command-line, and issue:

mvnDebug <options>

When Maven starts, it should wait for a debugger to attach before 
executing. Setup a new remote debugging configuration in Eclipse, using 
the plugin project for source, and connecting to localhost:5005 (IIRC 
that's the port mvnDebug uses). Maven should execute and stop on your 

Pretty simple.
