I have a web application that uses applets servlet communication. The web application
has a TOMCAT_HOME different from that of jBuilder. How do I setup the project properties to debug
the servlets in the web application?

I can currently debug the applets but not the servlets. Iam usin
Jbuilder 4 professional edition

You must execute JBuilder as a servlet engine using your servlet source code.

Step1) Go to Project >> Project Properties. Ensure your Source Path points to your servlet code. e.g. c:/servlet/src

Step2) Set your Output Path and Working Directory to e.g. c:/servlet.

Step3) Ensure all required libraries e.g. servlet.jar are included in Required Libraries.

Step4) Compile the code.

Step5) Again, go to Project >> Project Properties >> Run tab >> JSP/Servlet tab>> Server Options tab. Ensure the server is Tomcat (v3.1, 3.2 or 4).

Step6) Set the host name to your machine name e.g. MyPc, I use port 80 (ensure PWS or other web services using port 80 are suspended), Document Base c:/servlet BUT keep the context path empty! (unless you are deploying a web-app, war file).

Step7) Go to Run >> Debug Project. This should start Tomcat with your compiled servlet code in c:/servlet. Set a breakpoint in doGet() and use a browser to call the servlet URL e.g http://MyPc/servlet/testServlet.

Hope this helps...
