Subject tomcat 5.5.17 catalina.bat - dropping support for JPDA_OPTS environment variable?
Date Fri, 08 Sep 2006 15:42:49 GMT

We have upgraded from tomcat 4.1.18 to 5.5.17, and have found that our
system start up process on Windows can no longer set jpda debugger
options on the tomcat java command line.

This occurs because the 5.5.17 catalina.bat file no longer supports the
environment variable $JPDA_OPTS, which our start up process used to use
to place jpda information. What is interesting is that STILL
supports JPDA_OPTS. So we have this problem on windows only. 

Is this an intentional change?

We have fixed the problem by instead specifying JPDA_TRANSPORT and
JPDA_ADDRESS. However, this fix is only partial - with the catalina.bat
script unaltered, it is not possible to set suspend=y, as it is
hard-coded to suspend=n on the %_EXECJAVA% command lines

We updated the script and added a JPDA_SUSPEND environment variable, but
it would be nice to not have to change the script, as this will cause
upgrade issues.

We would like to back out the JPDA_SUSPEND change if there is a newer

Thanks for your time,
