debugging JSP without server [message #174453] Fri, 14 July 2006 12:24 Go to next message

I'm developing a program in JSP and I want to debug the code in my eclipse
editor. How is this done? The way that I am doing it now I make changes
to the file and then view the page through a browser getting errors and
traces when the code is bad. I'm hoping to be able to put watches on
variables.

You really do have to involve a server, there's no way to "execute"
the JSP otherwise. Luckily, something like Apache Tomcat only needs
to be downloaded, unpacked, and set up in the Installed Server /
Installed Runtimes preferences to get you going.

I have tomcat installed on my localhost and I also have a server to work
with. I guess the main question I have is is it possible to put watches
on variables with eclipse for JSP's? I would like to hit the Build button
on Eclipse and for the code to compiled the way the server would. I would
also like to hit the debug button to work on the code line by line.
