Remote debug Jetty (no mvn, no plugins)
I was used to use Tomcat in debug mode and connect my Eclipse with Remote Java Application to debug in my environment and remote boxes. Works perfect!
But recently I have to do the same but using Jetty, and was kind of boring to find how to start Jetty in debug mode as I mentioned above.
Surfing/googling you will find plugins to start Jetty inside your Eclipse and start Jetty with Maven, but was not my desire.
So, making a not so long story short, use this line to start your Jetty:
java -Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,address=8585,server=y,suspend=n -jar start.jar
And connect your Eclipse in the port 8585 in this example and be happy!
