    Need help startng websphere server in eclipse for debugging porpose

      I am using Eclipse Sdk Version: 3.1.2
      IBM websphere 6.0
      JDK 1.4

      I set debug value to "true" in my application.xml

      I have a .ear file of my application deployed on the websphere appserver. Currently I can test my application in nobebug mode.

      values of environment variables are -
      JAVA_HOME - C:\DEV\IBMJDK142; C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_03
      PATH - C:\DEV\IBMJDK142\bin; C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere MQ\Java\lib;C:\DEV\IBMJDK142\bin;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;

      I want to test the application in debug mode.

      I am using default server on websphere, which is server1.

      In Admin-console of webshere I went to
      server-->Application server-->choose server1-->Debugging Service ---->checked the checkbox "Enable service at server startup"

      Here value of my JVM debug port is 7777.

      next In Eclipse env I chose Run---->Debug....--->Remote Java Application ----> created a new application with the name of my application and set the connection properties to -
      Host - localhost

      Eclipse----> Windows----->Preferences---->Server----->Installed Runtime---->Add---->selected values such as -
      JRE - default JRE(JDK 1.4)
      IBM Websphere Installation Directory - C:/DEV/WebSphere/AppServer
      saved it.

      Now in debug perspective, I created a new server with selection/values such as -
      IBM--->IBM Websphere v6---->
      port - 9081
      server profile directory - C:/DEV/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/default
      cell - GCWSNTRANode01Cell
      node - GCWSNTRANode01
      server - server1
      Next---->Added the project to configured project ----->FINISH

      Closed Eclipse to save env settings.
      Started the default server (server1)
      opened eclipse - desired project--->debug perspective ---->choose server--->Right Click----Start/Debug

      mesg "Starting ServerI BM Websphere 6 - IBM Websphere 6 failed to start"

      can some one please tell me what I am missing here.
