You don't mention what you are using to debug your application, but I will assume that you are talking about Eclipse!?

Simply go to the "Run" menu and then select "Add Java Exception Breakpoint...", choose which Exception class that you want to break on and click Ok.



"Remote Debugging" means that the debugger (Eclipse) that is running in one JVM can "attach" to a separate JVM (this may be also running on the same machine, or a machine next to you or one in another country, perhaps) and pause execution, inspect variables, etc, etc, all the things that you can do when normally debugging java apps.

To do this, you still need the code/project on your local Eclipse machine. Then go to "Run" menu and then select "Debug Configurations...", find the "Remote Java Application" on the left side, and click the "New" configuration button (top left). On the right, give the configuration a name, check that the project is the one you want to debug, and then enter the host/port information of where the debugger can attach to the remote JVM (note that the remote JVM has to have been started with option to enable remote debugging and setting the port to listen on). Then click "Debug" (bottom right) and if everything is in order, it will attach to the remote JVM and you can then pause execution, set breakpoints, etc, etc.
