Debugging a JavaEE application in Netbeans

Hi there,

I want to migrate our current ANT based JavaEE projects to Gradle in order to use Arquillian (a dependency heavy framework) for testing. I’ve managed to convert the projects but I’m missing some of the nice IDE features. The two main ones I can think of at the moment are in place deployment (I’ve got full deployment going, but it takes 30+ seconds) and debugging. As the name of the post implies, debugging carries more weight at the moment. Has anyone have a solution on this? I’ve tried adding debug jvmArgs to run the task, but the breakpoints don’t get called…
