Let me share the simple way to enable the remote debugging mode in tomcat with eclipse (Windows)

Step 1: open bin/startup.bat file
Step 2: add the below lines for debugging with JDPA option (it should starting line of the file )

  • set JPDA_ADDRESS=9090
  • set JPDA_TRANSPORT=dt_socket

Step 3: in the same file .. go to end of the file modify this line -

    call "%EXECUTABLE%" jpda start %CMD_LINE_ARGS%
    instead of line
    call "%EXECUTABLE%" start %CMD_LINE_ARGS%

step 4: then just run bin>startup.bat (so now your tomcat server run in remote mode with port 9090).

step 5: after that lets connect your source project by eclipse IDE with remote client.

step6: In the Eclipse IDE go to "debug Configuration"

step7:click "remote java application" and on that click "New"

step8. in the "connect" tab set the parameter value

   project= your source project
   connection Type: standard (socket attached)
   host: localhost

step9: click apply and debug.

so finally your eclipse remote client is connected with the running tomcat server (debug mode).

Hope this approach might be help you.
