Using Eclipse to debug javascript in web pages [message #184282] Sun, 10 December 2006 08:18 Go to next message

Hi,

I currently use MS Visual Studio when I need to
debug the JavaScript within web pages. When an
error occurs in the page, I get prompted whether
I want to debug or not (as I have that enabled in
IE) and if I click Yes then I can choose which of
my installed debuggers to use. This is where I can
specify I want to use VS.NET and away I go. I
can even force this debug prompt at any point in
my code by adding the keyword debugger in the
code.

Since I've discovered the joys of Eclipse, I'd like
to do the same thing with Eclipse. Is it possible?
Can I get Eclipse to be listed as one of my available
JS debuggers?

If so, is it also possible with Firefox?

I doubt it but it's worth asking while I'm here. I know
Venkman exists for Firefox but it sucks (it's the worst
debugger I've seen in 20 years of programming)....

I'm surprised nobody knows if this is possible or not.

No!
Eclipse cannot be used as an IE script debugger.

Try to use FireBug if you want a nice debugger for Firefox.

Thanks for the info, good to know, even if it's not possible.

Thanks for the Firebug tip too, I hadn't heard of that.
