Debugging custom languages ?

Hi,

I have a language which is translated in the end into a java. I want to be able to put breakpoints in the source language and evaluate items in there if possible ? Is there something in the OpenAPI enabling me to do this ?

The effect should be similar in spirit with what the JSP debugging is doing but i haven't followed the OpenAPI lately and i have no idea if this is possible at all or not.

See the PositionManager interface.

Hello,

I have the same problem here.

Do you intent to support LineNumberTable, LocalVariableTable and SourceFile attributes of the ClassFile format ?
This will allow to debug our home made languages without writing a plugin specially for IDEA.

For example, JSwat does it well but this is not our favorite IDE...

Thanks
