Setting Up Tomcat For Remote Debugging - WG: Programmer's Cafe Tomcat can be configured to allow a program such as eclipse to connect remotely using JPDA and see debugging information. (powerpoint presentation) To configure tomcat to allow remote debugging, start tomcat using the catalina startup script (from your tomcat home) instead of the normal startup script like so (tomcat must be stopped before you can change over): WIN: We recommend adding this stuff to your startup script so that you are always running tomcat in debug mode.

Multi-Threaded Programming 2: Communication The next step in learning about multi-threaded programming is going to involve seeing how threads communicate with each other. This is important so that it is understandable why many of the pitfalls when programming with multiple threads exist. I am going to stick with x86-64 based architectures for simplicity, but this is pretty applicable to all computing devices from my experience. If you want to read up on other things that I have covered, then here is my previous post in this series: Multi-Threaded Programming 1: Basics Reading From Memory Adblock Plus now sells ads Adblock Plus is launching a new service that... uh, puts more ads on your screen. Rather than stripping all ads from the internet forever, Adblock Plus is hoping to replace the bad ads — anything it deems too big, too ugly, or too intrusive — with good ads, ones that are smaller, subtler, and theoretically much less annoying.
