IntelliJ Module Debug

Hello,
I’d like to say I’ve followed the guide @ Ignition SDK Programmers Guide - Ignition SDK Programmer's Guide - Ignition Documentation to the T but I am running into some issues.

Versions:
IntelliJ 2021.1.2
Ignition - 8.1.7
Java11
maven 3.8.1

When attempting to set up a debugger for the designer i get an error that says ‘com.inductiveautomation.ignition.client.launch.BootstrapSwing’ not found in module ‘designer-launcher’

Can anyone help?

BootstrapSwing would be for the client, not the designer.

I tried that as well with no luck.

I don’t think you have everything in the right place, assuming you’re using a recent version of IntelliJ.

Where you have DesignerStartupHook is where I have the args like -Djavaws.ignition.loglevel=INFO

Where you have BootstrapSwing is where I have DesignerStartupHook

If im not mistaken, this version of intelliJ moved around the location of items.

com.inductiveautomation.ignition.client.launch.BootstrapSwing - is under the main class

-Dscadarail.version=dev -Djavaws.sr.gateway.addr.0=127.0.01:8088:8043/main -Djavaws.sr.scope=C -Djavaws.sr.main=com.inductiveautomation.factorypmi.application.runtime.ClientLaunchHook -Djavaws.sr.project=ProjectName -Djavaws.sr.project.scope=Published - is under program arguments

Since you’re using Java 11, I’ll assume you’re working in 8+, which means you don’t need the -Djavaws.sr.project.scope=Published any more.

What module are you trying to run under – designer-launcher or client-launcher?

Okay, we made a little progress. all dependencies are resolving now. However, when we actually run the debug tools (both designer and client) we never get prompted for log in, and a client/designer never launches. Here is what the console outputs when we run.

@pturmel any ideas? saw you were pretty active on some other related posts. Thanks in advance.

I debug with logging. Almost everything I do is so heavily multi-threaded that the JVM debug features are effectively useless.

@pturmel Right on… How hard is that to set up?

For most stuff that purely for development, I’ll use a static logger instance for each class. Something like this:

	protected static final LoggerEx sLogger = LogUtil.getLogger(SomeClass.class.getCanonicalName());

Then wherever I need progress and status info I put something like this:

sLogger.debugf("Some pattern with %s and other formats", someObject)

It is best if your objects have .toString() implementations so above call doesn’t have to waste time generating complex string formats when debug is off.

I believe this message means that the designer detected the JVM running the designer is not the same as what it expects, so it ends the process and starts a new one. Try adding

-Djavaws.sr.runtimeOverride=true

to the launch options (the field between the classpath and the main class)
