I'm trying to get eclipse to debug javascript on firebug/cross fire,
but I can't get the option to set the right connector.
Do I need to install the firebug connector somehow?

I can't download Rhino debugger because it only has ftp :/
If you know a place where I could download through ftp, that would be great.

If someone knows where I could find a full tutorial how to debug javascript on eclipse it would be great.

Thanks
Emerson

Hi Emerson, I wonder what documentation you used to decide this was
possible.

On the JDT one:

http://wiki.eclipse.org/JSDT

Debug - integrated debug support for Rhino and Crossfire

Then here:
http://wiki.eclipse.org/JSDT/Debug

Currently we have debugging support for Rhino and an incubation version of Crossfire / Firebug support.

Using the Crossfire Debugger

An alternative debugger that interacts with Firebug using Crossfire is under development. This page describes how to try and get the experimental version of the debugger up and running.

Any news on this? I just installed Helios and do not see the required connector for Crossfire debugging. Help / Better Docs appreciated.

Thanks....

Bump.
Same problem still exist. The documentation mentioned a connector for crossfire and chrome but only a Rhino debug configuration is available. It is not clear how to add mozilla/crossfire or chrome support.

I haven't spent very much time with this, but something to check out for Chrome debugging is ChromeDevTools.

Official description: "This project provides debugging tools for developers writing applications that run on Google Chrome or its open-source version Chromium. The tools enable you to debug JavaScript inside these browsers over the TCP/IP protocol"

So, easiest method to get the plugin is to just use the repository (paste into 'Work with' field etc): http://chromedevtools.googlecode.com/svn/update/dev/

Next, go to its Project page and follow the instructions at the bottom (under 'How to Debug').

I think for general Chrome compatibility/debugging it's easiest to download a .zipped Chromium trunk build and make it your go-to for debugging/development purposes (as opposed to setting up multiple Chrome profiles), especially if Chrome is your personal browser of choice.

(Also of interest: List of Chromium Command Line Switches)
