Debugging Generic Web Applications in MyEclipse
This page details the debugger in MyEclipse.
Note: You can also use the CodeMix plugin for creating and debugging web apps. CodeMix is compatible with MyEclipse 2017 and higher and works with existing Professional or higher licenses. Refer to Debugging in CodeMix for more information.
Starting the Debugger
To debug a generic web application, you must have Google Chrome installed. When you start the debugger, Google Chrome opens automatically.
Use any of the following methods to start the debugger:
Using the Debug Perspective
The first time the debugger encounters a breakpoint, you are asked to switch to the Debug perspective. Select Remember my decision to avoid this message in the future, and then click Yes. The Debug perspective includes the views you need to effectively debug your code.
Editing Debug Configurations
Tip: If you do not select a Server, you can debug a web application that is deployed on a remote server.
