Subject Re: How to trace/debug?

I generally use Eclipse's remote debugging facilities.  I'm not sure 
what appserver you're using, but with Tomcat you can do the following:

set JPDA_TRANSPORT=dt_socket
catalina jpda start

Then in Eclipse you select a project, choose "Open Debug Dialog" and 
create a new "Remote Java Application" configuration.  The default 
values will connect to the Tomcat server you just started.

You should have all the appropriate Myfaces source trees imported as 
projects.  Then, just set breakpoints in the code and hit your 
application as normal.  It will suspend whenever one of the breakpoints 
is hit.  Then you can do the normal debugger stuff: continue execution, 
step over, step into, etc.  Eclipse will also list all the variables in 
use and their values.
