Re: [Dltk-dev] DBGp for Ruby

Hello Werner,

Thanks for your interest in DLTK!
Our framework has a support of DBGP protocol. We use it now with TCL. Out implementation is language-independent and theoretically can be used with any language. You can see "org.eclipse.dltk.dbgp" package for details.

It's very interesting to know that you already have an implementation of DBGP on ruby side. I think it would be great if we can test how your library works with our Java code. We can add some changes in DLTK-Ruby for testing of your library. It allows to fix protocol-related bugs in both implementations. Do you like this idea?

In general, you can put Ruby-code in any separate plug-in that has Java interface for starting/stopping of the debugging engine. For more information about how the debugging process (and configuration) is organized with TCL please see

Kind regards,
Dmitriy Kovalev

I'm experimenting with writing a Ruby DBGp library, ie. Ruby code that
handles the DBGp protocol and controls the Ruby interpreter.
I  probably won't release this, since it's just for fun, but I was
 - is the Java side Ruby/DLTK ready to handle this (a DBGp Ruby debugger)
 - where would I need to put the Ruby source for the debugger in the
debug or launching plugin?
