Description _ krystyna 2008-06-07 01:27:14 UTC
NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200806061204)
Java: 1.6.0_10-beta; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 11.0-b11
System: Windows XP

Tested both the 'Ruby' and the 'All' distribution

1. create a new Ruby on Rails project
2. check project property "Debug Rails Application (client side - Firefox browser only)" 
3. Ctrl + F5 (or run debug main project)
> Firefox does not launch and NetBeans JavaScript debugger does not launch; neither debugger toolbar or
ide output windows do not appear

Only See WebBrick running for project in status window.

-Verified that debug.client=true appears in nbproject/
-debugger launches for plain web projects AOK

I can't reproduce this issue on main.  Here are a few things you can try to isolate the problem:

- Try the Run action instead of Debug
- Check the output by opening Window->Ouput->Output
- Check the IDE log for exceptions

Interesting: today's all zip all package
NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 20080609195427)
Java: 1.6.0_10-beta; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 11.0-b11
System: Windows XP version 5.1
launched the debugger fine.

But the installer Ruby only package
NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200806090002) failed client debug
with no log errors. I only detected an error 
when checking both server AND client debug where "fast debugger" failed
to install with an error to the IDE "could not find ruby-debug-ide locally 
or in repository".

I'll go check the zip Ruby only package that is a little older than that.

Today's zip ruby only distribution is working fine. 
I think I know what happened--on Friday, due to
download problems, I was working with the installer builds from 
an internal site. These are either broken or outdated. I'll follow
up on that and close this.
