I’m using gradle 1.8 to build a standard web-app (has to be 1.8 as I also use gradle for Android which insists on 1.8).
I had gradle run my app configured for remote debug with the usual
GRADLE_OPTS="-agentlib:jdwp=transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=n,address=5005" gradle jettyRunWar
All seemed normal, with this message in the app output:
Listening for transport dt_socket at address: 5005
and Intellij connected no problem to the remote app debug. However with the gradle daemon mode enabled the breakpoints (in Intellij 13) did not fire. If I disable the gradle daemon and restart the app with just
the breakpoints work fine.
