Is there any documentation on ATF? Basic stuff, such as what it is, and what it does? I can't find anything in the Wiki, FAQ, or articles.

My interest is in debugging HTML + Javascript web pages.

hi,
basically ATF provides two things:
1. Javascript debugger. You can launch it against some URL, e.g
www.eclipse.org, put breakpoints in javascript files and see how are
they executed.
2. Integration with Mozilla browser. This gives a better understanding
how does browser see and read your webpage. So you can see the HTML
document broken into DOM model, see the style properties for any HTML
document elements, see the network activity required to load the
webpage. You can also watch how Javascript expressions change and how
DOM model changes - useful when writing dynamic web sites.

We're working on updating the documentation and, being a low priority
task, it constantly slips to next milestone :-(
I should get it done finally. Thanks!

You can take a look at some vids at
http://www.eclipse.org/atf/flash/index.php

Is that helpful? What else would you like to know?

Jacek

Yes, this is useful to know. It seems to be what I'm looking for.

Let me advise you that having *some* overview documentation is the most important part of any sw project. Without it, potential users can't find out whether your product is appropriate, and few will try to use it.

The video you referenced (I only found 0ne) just shows how to create a project. In addition, I need to know how to start the debugger, set breakpoints, examine variables, etc.

BTW, the videos are so tiny they are hard to follow. Written docs of the individual steps would be more useful.
