1. Debugging OFBiz in Eclipse
Before we also used to debug or run OFBiz inside Eclipse, but this is no longer documented here as long as the "Can't find bundle for base name cache, locale en" bug is not fixed.
Step 1: Run OFBiz in debug mode
Normally we start OFBiz with the command line
To start in debug mode use the command line
This run in debug mode listening for a socket connection on port 5005 for a debugger to connect. So unlike with Ant you have to connect a Debugger at this port for OFBiz to continue.
Step 2: Connect to OFBiz with Eclipse as a Debugger
Before connecting you have to create a new debug configuration.
- In Eclipse choose Run->Debug... from the menu. A Debug window should pop up.

- Type a name at the top (OFBiz, perhaps?)
- On the Connect tab

Standard (Socket Attach)for Connection Type
- On the Source tab
Add Projects...(buttons on the right)
- Select the ofbiz project
ApplyIf you have OFBiz running debug (Step 1 above) you can start debugging by clicking
Debug(on the bottom) now.
You know that you are connected when you see a start/stop button in the debug perspective of Eclipse.
