Oracle and JPDA

I believed that I had to go through the pain to bridge DBMS_DEBUG to JDWP. I’ve already started to look into it, using GNU Classpath’s implementation. But it turns out that Oracle already supports debugging stored procedures with JPDA.

But all it does is that saves work on Dbdb, not makes it irrelevant. While adapting another debugger to JPDA is useful (and I may yet do it for something else), it is not the primary value of this project. It is in the unified call stack.

And David Alpern of Oracle claims they already have something like this, but it’s nowhere to be found. JDeveloper allows debugging stored procedures but the the single call stack, which is what I think is the ultimate value of Dbdb, is not there…
