I’m trying to debug the Ignition 8 Designer in IntelliJ like I used to with Ignition 7. I re-followed the instructions at https://docs.inductiveautomation.com/display/SE/Debugging+in+IntelliJ but what I observe is that IntelliJ successfully launches the designer but it looks like a child process is spawned and the parent process exits, which causes IntelliJ to think everything’s over with.
The last few lines of the IntelliJ console are as follows:
Running: [C:\Users\mark_\.ignition\cache\resources\runtimes\11.0.3\bin\java.exe, -cp, C:\Users\mark_\.ignition\cache\launchclient_ADF54DE0.jar, -Dia.retarget.token=ADF54DE0, -Djavaws.sr.memory.init=64M, -Djavaws.sr.memory.max=256M, -Djavaws.sr.platform.edition=null, -Xms64M, -Xmx256M, com.inductiveautomation.ignition.client.launch.BootstrapSwing] Launched JVM. Disconnected from the target VM, address: '127.0.0.1:52871', transport: 'socket' Process finished with exit code 0
