bjdwp: Command line USB Blackberry Java Debug Wire Protocol


bjdwp - Command line USB Blackberry Java Debug Wire Protocol


bjdwp [-h][-p pin][-P password][-v] address port


bjdwp is a program that supports the Java Debug Wire Protocol over USB, which enables debugging of Java programs directly on your Blackberry.

Support is experimental, and development is focused primarily on the BlackBerry Storm.


-p pin
PIN of device to talk with. Only needed if you have more than one Blackberry connected at once.
-P password
Simplistic method to specify device password. In a real application, this would be done using a more secure prompt.
Dump verbose protocol data during operation.
-h, --help
Show summary of options.


The following arguments are required, in order to provide a socket where the JDWP server will listen for connections from the debugger.
Most often 'localhost' but can be any IP or hostname on the machine running bjdwp.
Port to listen on.


Start the server and the USB connection to the device:

        bjdwp localhost 8000

Then start your java debugger:

        jdb -connect com.sun.jdi.SocketAttach:hostname=localhost,port=8000


bjdwp was initially written for the Barry project by Nicolas VIVIEN. This manual page was written by Chris Frey.
