    While tracing some problems in one of my grails applications I had the need to do step debugging on a remote Tomcat server. Eventually I came up with the following lines to launch TomCat in debug mode:

    @echo off
    set JPDA_TRANSPORT="dt_socket"
    set JPDA_ADDRESS="8000"
    set JPDA_SUSPEND="y"
    catalina.bat jpda start

    Simply create a debug.bat file in TomCat’s bin directory and add these lines.

    • Thanks, it worked for me with few changes:
      @echo off
      set JPDA_TRANSPORT=”dt_socket”
      set JPDA_ADDRESS=”8000″
      set JPDA_SERVER=”y”
      set JPDA_SUSPEND=”n”
      catalina.bat jpda start

    • For me its only working without “”
