    Re: RAD mobile application development


    The best place to debug your Dojo Mobile /JQuery apps is into your favorite PC browser debug capabilities (e.g. Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc). For example, for Firefox you can use Firebug (, for Chrome you can use its native JavaScript console (typically Ctrl + Shift + J), etc. Those browser debug capabilities are really handy while you're developing / debugging JS apps in your PC. In addition to that, you can always debug your apps even deployed thru the Mobile Browser Simulator. You can change the browser you want to use to run (and then debug) your app in Preferences > General > Web Browser.

    RAD supports a mechanism to remotely debug JS apps from your RAD workspace, which basically synchronize variables, breakpoints and traces from your Firefox/Firebug browser to the RAD debug views. However, we strongly recommend to use the browser-native side debug capabilities instead, since you're about to run the latest supported and enhanced Firebug versions according your Firefox installation, and also have a broader debug capabilities thru other browsers as well.

    Please let me know if you need more specific information.

    Thanks, Polo.
