Hello Rob,

Intellij 9.0.2 / xslt-path 3.1-Diana.

Anyone having any luck with this combination?


The bundled XPath/XSLT plugin doesn't include debugging support. Debugging
is supported in XSLT Debugger plugin, available from the plugin manager,
but I don't know whether it's compatible with IDEA 9.0.2.

I guess the fact that "XSLT Debugger"  it doesn't show up in the 902 plugin manager indicates a no-go.  Sad. Can one load the debugger plugin by hand I wonder...

I have been using the xslt-debugger plugin with MAIA/9.0.2 for about a month, and have not hit any limitations because it is not officially supported.
I edited the plugin.xml in the plugins JAR to remove the upper limitation of supported version.
As with the XSLT support which is XSLT 1.0, I believe you can only debug XSLT 1.0 stylesheets.

I have only used one other XSLT debugger Stylus 2008 EE  for a few hours. I found that interface suprisingly primitive for a professional tool.
Its debugger integration was equalivent to xslt-debugger plugin though I liked xslt-debugger interface better.
By that I mean I had expected to be able to drill down into the watch point values, similar to java. It must be hard to do.
I was left with the impression I must be missing some trick.
Though Stylus does support XSLT 2.0 which is important.

Just heard from the author that 9.0.x compatible release has been published.  Haven't loaded it yet myself.

There is no download link to manually download the plugin from the web site.

Now at 9.0.3, with xsltdegubber 1.2.4 and appropriate related plugins, using saxon parcing (-Dxslt.transformer.type=saxon )a nd again no joy.

If I set "show in default console" complete expected output from "Run" appears in a "Run xslt debug" window. (Thank goodness)
If I set "show in extra console tab" and click "Run" nothing appears in the "Run xslt debug" window other than the startup line followed by "Connected toXSLT runner.." but cycles are consumed
If I set "show in extra console tab" and click "Debug", nothing, nada, zilch, zip-all.  No new console debug window, no uptick on the cycle meter.  Much frustraion.

I'm finally able to use the XSTL debugger using the XSLT-Debugger plugin v 1.2.5 dated 11/17/2010 with Idea X UI-98.382. This plugin is really really good and I wish IntelliJ maintained and bundled it with the base product itself.
