Installers can be debugged using remote debugging:

  1. Place a breakpoint in com.izforge.izpack.installer.bootstrap.Installer.main(String[] args)
  2. Run the command with the appropriate debug agent settings
  3. Attach to the process in the debugger


      java -Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=y,address=5005 -jar installer.jar

The above specifies to suspend execution of the installer until the debugger attaches on port 5005.

NOTE: if the installer requires elevated privileges, it should be run as an administrator.

This is required as the installer relaunches itself if elevated permissions are needed.
