Enable Application Debugger Support

Applications managed by Jive are capable of accepting remote Java debuggers. To enable debugging, export environment variables “DEBUG” and “JPDA_TRANSPORT” prior to starting the managed application to be debugged.

For example, to debug via remote socket connection, start the desired application as shown below.

[0832][jive@melina:~]$ export DEBUG=1 && export JPDA_TRANSPORT=dt_socket && appstart sbs

Note that only one managed application may be debugged at a time. When running in DEBUG mode, the application JVM will halt until a debugger is attached.
