Please see the section on debugging Flex and Java code in the SDK FAQ document, and also the SDK Tutorial (part of the additional updated-sdk-docs.zip available on the SDK download page). The Web Client is a runtime platform for building plugins, it is not designed to build standalone apps that you can debug independently of the vSphere environment if it is what you are asking. But the Eclipse or STS environment, along with the Flash Builder add-on, provides all the facilities for a productive development cycle of the Flex and Java bundles.
Appreciate the response.
Does that mean that I have to develop the UI, compile, deploy. As previously mentioned Flex/Java(Spring) by itself I am able to debug both ends just fine.
In this case, I just want to develop the UI that it's "the plugin" and set breakpoints in my UI Flash Builder. Otherwise, we are talking about a compile and deploy each time, print statements, trace, etc.. to see what is happening.
Are you saying that there is no way to write a plugin and debug the vSphere Flex UI via breakpoints and inspect variables, see responses from the server, etc?
Thanks in advance for the response.
Did you read the SDK docs in questions before asking your new question?
All debugging is possible.
"All debugging is possible."
I am able to breath again.
Looking through the docs now.
Really appreciate the help.
