I have installed openstack grizzly version using devstack script successfully (Installed Path is /opt/stack/). Also, I have made eclipse IDE dev environment with quantum as pydev project at /root/openstack/GIT/neutron dir

Using pydev debugger I have kept a breakpoint the file /root/openstack/GIT/neutron/bin/quantum-server

import eventlet
eventlet.monkey_patch(os=False, thread=False)

import os
import sys
sys.path.insert(0, os.getcwd())  <<<<<<<<<<<<<< Break point here
from quantum.server import main as server


I have started debugging, it hit the break point in the file /root/openstack/GIT/neutron/bin/quantum-server and when I am doing step by step execution, I have observed that it started referring files from the path /opt/stack/neutron directory which is not in the project work space. Can anyone please let me know what I am missing here?

I am not sure about your peculiar setup, but I think that when devstack configures openstack services it runs develop. Then when the neutron-server binary imports any package from neutron, the modules are loaded from /opt/stack/neutron

I think you might even point your eclipse workspace to /opt/stack - being careful to not add .project and .pydevproject to your git commits.

Thanks Salvatore I have now made eclipse to point to /opt/stack directory the problem is solved
