Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 4 Developer's Guide to Java Web Applications

JPDA Options

The default JPDA options are as follows:

-Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=n

If you change the value of suspend=y, the JVM starts in suspended mode and stays suspended until a debugger attaches to it. Use this option if you want to start debugging as soon as the JVM starts.

To specify the port to use when attaching the JVM to a debugger, specify address=port_number. You can also use the shared memory transport dt_shmem on the Win32 platform.
