Problem statement:- want to simplify and understand the flow.
There is a complex old J2EE application which interacts with other client applications through RMI/EJB.
It uses XDoclet and is annotation based. I need to make modification and test everyday. It is very difficult to debug the application as the tar file I have to deploy on remote server and run Unit Test Cases from my local machine. I use eclipse but I find very complex to check as the only tool to check is the logs and search the call hierarchy.
To make a small change and do unit test takes days. I need a simper easy to use approach.
Environment:- Java1.5, Mac OSX(10.6), Unix, Eclipse Galielo (Work Bench), JBoss
