With the acceptance of aspect oriented programming and the tools to
auto-generate code from XML metadata (and soon Java class metadata)
there is a real need to be able to debug into auto-generated code. It
would be best that the code decompiled first then debugged.
In my case, I am debugging a Tapestry application which enhances
abstract pages at load time to implement the declared page properties.
I want to set a breakpoint on one of the methods that is simply declared as
abstract public String getProperty();
in my source file. I downloaded the IdeaJAD plugin, but I don't know
how to get it to debug into a auto-generated class that does not reside
Is it possible to do what I want to do with the IdeaJAD plugin? Perhaps
I'm not set up properly.
