How to Setup Remote Debug with WebLogic Server and Eclipse

· Java Zone

What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

Here is how I enable remote debugging with WebLogic Server (11g) and Eclipse IDE. (Actually the java option is for any JVM, just the instruction here is WLS specific.) 

1. Edit <my_domain>/bin/setDomainEnv.sh file and add this on top:

JAVA_OPTIONS="$JAVA_OPTIONS -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,address=8000,server=y,suspend=y" 


The suspend=y will start your server and wait for you to connect with IDE before continue. If you don't want this, then set to suspend=n instead.

2. Start/restart your WLS with <my_domain>/bin/startWebLogic.sh

3. Once WLS is running, you may connect to it using Eclipse IDE. Go to Menu: Run > Debug Configuration ... > Remote Java Application and create a new entry. Ensure your port number is matching to what you used above.
