How to Debug WSO2 Carbon Kernel Tutorial

In this tutorial I'm going to show you how to debug carbon kernel. This method is actually called the remote debugging.
  1. *For this you'll need a carbon which build from the source. Refer this post.
  2. *An IDE, For this I'm using IDEA.
  3. *Carbon based product I'm using WSO2 Application Server for this tutorial.
Ok now first start the application server in debug mode. Go to  AS-SERVER/bin and execute the following command.
aruna@aruna-Latitude-E6540:~/Downloads/wso2as-5.2.0/bin$ ./wso2server.sh debug 5005
Now start the IDEA IDE. and import the kernel. Just select the root pom.xml and open.
Then create a remote debug configuration. Go to Run --> Edit Configurations... Then press Alt + Insert and select Remote. Give a name to the configuration and complete by pressing apply.

That's it you have configured the IDE and ready to debug. Put a break point and check if it's working. Let's put the break point in the main method.
In the package org.wso2.carbon.server; put a break point to Main.java file. Then press Shift + F9 to start debugging.
That's it for now and happy debugging.. :)
