I use the debugger quite a lot both for RPG (at work) and for Java and C (at home). The Run and Debug icons and menu at the top are not for RPG; they are for Java, C and the like. The Run menu comes to RDP because it tags along with the basic Eclipse functionality.

For RPG, you want the SEP debugger which is a context menu choice in the RSE view. Instead of double-clicking on a program to open it, right click, Debug (Service Entry) and set a Service Entry Point.

Alternatively, you could show the IBMi Service Entry Points view, right click in it and Set a SEP from there.

Well, I'm finally biting the bullet and trying to learn how to debug in RDP.

I opened up a test (simple) program in the LPEX editor. I clicked on the Run menu and selected the Run option.

I got the following error:
An error has occurred. See error log for more details.
java.lang.NullPointerException

I closed the error dialog and tried again, getting the slightly different following:
An internal error occurred during: "Launching RemoteSystemsTempFiles".
java.lang.NullPointerException

Is there initial setup required in order to use the debugger? Or should I take this to PMR-land?

Thanks,
