I am using eclipse to develop for android, I noticed a great feature for Eclipse CDT: actions for a breakpoint, which allow me to perform wide range of a actions when a specific breakpoint is hit.
Unfortunately, this feature isn't available for JDT, so I wanted to hear from you about it...

it is available, just Eclipse calls it a "condition". See, e.g., Deepak's blog post at http://blog.deepakazad.com/2010/06/print-points-debugging-by-writing-to.html

Note, that the trick he calls PrintPoints is not restricted to sysout actions.

Nice workaround, but C++ breakpoint actions allow me to add "External Tool Action" which can be a shell script or so...
it might be strange but android native code debugging drove me insane. i need to start java code debugging, and make it break at a specific function, then I call a script named ndk-gdb, and after that i start native debugging, at last i continue execution (which was paused on the last breakpoint).
that's too much to do every time i need to debug, so i'm looking for some way to automate these steps.
thanks for your response.

You can call Runtime.getRuntime().exec() to create any process and I think you should be able to do that..

Here is a link to the documentation about the 'breakpoint actions' feature in CDT:

http://help.eclipse.org/indigo/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.cdt.doc.user%2Ftasks%2Fcdt_t_add_brk_action.htm

We also have a bug to move this support to the platform:

Thanks, but this executes on the device not on the computer I'm using for debugging.
(to debug android apps eclipse uses some kind of remote debugging)

good news that it exists, bad news is that it's been there since 2009!

so thank you guys it's like i have to wait for Google to enhance their development process
