As I understand, after 20 years of Eclipse there is still no hexdump output for byte[] in the debugger.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/381546/how-can-i-display-a-byte-array-as-a-string-in-javas-debug-detail-formatter/381934

I'd like to have byte[] formatted like Linux's hexdump -C

My workaround was to put a static hexDump(byte[] ) method into a jar and drop this into lib/endorsed. So I could use the method as expression in the Expression view.

Starting with Java 9, this no longer works, as lib/endorsed is no longer supported.

How can I make my code accessible to the debug view? Create a plugin? How would I do that?

Alternatively, there is sun.misc.HexDumpEncoder()
How can I make it accessible from the debugger?

Thanks,
Juergen

Perhaps nobody has requested this in 20 years? :)

I also commented in SO.

We could certainly provide pointers how to get started rolling your own plug-in, but I see chances that we implement this directly in JDT, if asked :)
