Debug support for Java Micro Edition

How much of the debugger functionality should work for Java Micro

I can connect the debugger to the Sun Wireless Toolkit, but many of the
fancy debug functions are not working. Is the reason for this wrong
usage, bugs or limitations of the KDWP (subset of JDWP):

1. I often get java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException. For example
when using "Evaluate Expression".
2. Field watchpoints - not working.
3. Method breakpoints - not working.
4. Hot swap not supported - this is maybe a limitation of the KVM?

I would appreciate if someone could explain what debug support to expect
for Java ME projects.

The limitations are 'features' of the KVM (Unsupported exceptions indicate this).
