Debugging Java Dapr-enabled Apps in GitHub Codespaces

To simplify the development and debugging of complex Java Dapr-enabled microservices we recommend leveraging Docker Compose to define all services including the Java Apps, each with its own Dapr sidecar, plus infrastructure/dependent services all these running in individual containers. Using a VS Code devcontainer with Docker-in-Docker support, enabling Java extensions, and installing Maven and OpenJDK. Creating a new GitHub Codespaces instance and finally employing VS Code to attach to a remote Java process for debugging purposes.
