Debugging widget extensions

 Is there any other information on how to debug a webworks app with a widget extension? I've found this thread which says to use the /s option on bbwp, and load it into Eclipse. however the resulting code isn't a project and can't be imported. Also, other posters seem to have problems with breakpoints etc. It seems like there should be more documentation on the subject, but I didn't find it.   This whole process seems to be EXTREMELY painful.

Re: Debugging widget extensions

Hi Bill,

 

The results of /s should produce a jdw file which you can import into eclipse using the import legacy projects option. I have never had problems with breakpoints myself, but it is true this part of the process is somewhat painful.

Re: Debugging widget extensions

I didn't look for a legacy project file, so thanks for pointing that out. I will give that a try.
