    Hi guys,

    How can I debug from a remote computer, without making any
    pre-configurations on the server side.
    I.e. I want to run the application normally, without any special
    parameters, on machine X, and then, when a problem occurres, to connect
    to X from machine Y, and debug the application.

    All I found until now, is that I can do it only if I run the
    application with specific parameters.
    Anybody knows something else?

  2. You can't.
    If a Java VM would accept debug connections without specific start options,
    it would open a big security hole.
    Every Tom, Dick and Harry would be able to hack into running Java-based
    servers (of Ebay, online-banks, etc.) to do their forgery.
    Is it that what you plan to do?
