Cannot resolve reference to bean 'rhinoScriptDebugger' - how to enable server-side JavaScript debugger?

Question asked by Aleksey Bykov on Jan 30, 2017
Latest reply on Feb 1, 2017 by Aleksey Bykov

I have Alfresco Community v5.2.0 and Alfresco Share v5.2.c that running on Apache Tomcat 7.0 Servlet/JSP Container, installed on CentOS 7.3.

 

As far as I know, I can use two approach to enable the JavaScript debugging:

 

  1. Enable the debugger for every time when server starts
  2. Enable the debugger when required.

 

If I use first approach.

 

For the repository tier I set the following property in /tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties:

 

...
log4j.logger.org.alfresco.repo.web.scripts.AlfrescoRhinoScriptDebugger=on
...

 

For the web tier I set the following property in /tomcat/webapps/share/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties:

 

...
log4j.logger.org.alfresco.web.scripts.AlfrescoScriptDebugger=on
...

 


As a result, I get an exception.

If I use second approach.
    
For the repository tier, I go through the link http://localhost:8080/alfresco/service/api/javascript/debugger then I see the following:


I press Enable and get exception again:

What I'm doing wrong? How to enable server-side JavaScript debugger?

I would be very grateful for the information.

 

Thanks to all.
