Hi, I'm trying to make a plugin witch can attach automatically the eclipse
debugger to remote process.
My plugin has the address and port number of the jvm to debug (port number
defined at jvm launch with the vm arguments).
I would like to know if it's possible to attach automatically the debugger
with this informations without using the debug configuration dialog.
Thanks.

Vanni,
so you'd basically like to do Debug>Debug Remote Java Application
programatically, correct?

Then let's find out how does Debug Remote Java Application launch
configuration work. Launch configurations are all registered in
org.eclipse.debug.core.launchConfigurationTypes extension point.

Let's then go to Plug-in Registry view, switch to Extension Points mode,
find org.eclipse.debug.core.launchConfigurationTypes extension point.
You'll see that plugin org.eclipse.jdt.launching extends it with
org.eclipse.jdt.launching.remoteJavaApplication launch config.
This launch config declares that all the delegate implementation is in
class
org.eclipse.jdt.internal.launching.JavaRemoteApplicationLaun chConfigurationDelegate
in org.eclipse.jdt.launching plug-in.

So let's have a look at that class and implement something similar like
there in your own plugin.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, it's ok!
I have used an existing LaunchConfiguration (with the LaunchManager) to
get a ILaunchConfigurationWorkingCopy.
After I have set the IJavaLaunchConfigurationConstants.ATTR_CONNECT_MAP
attribute with a HashMap which contains the hostname and the port number.
This WorkingCopy create a new LaunchConfiguration (when the doSave()
method is called) that the plugin uses to attach the debugger.
