I’ve had good experience using Netbeans to connect to JVM processes for
debugging, inclusive of setting breakpoints, but if I were to approach your
problem I would first try to get the abcl.jar running in the Java Servlet
context to start a SLIME swank server that I could then connect to to set the
appropriate debug hooks.

I’m glad you got something to work!
