Hi Gorkem,

Here some information I would like to tell you:

 * _javascript_ Debugger. It should be very cool if someone could implement a debuger for to debug ternjs like Webclipse and Nodeclipse have done This feature is soon finished and it gives you the capability to debug ternjs en your custom tern plugin with Eclipse IDE. You select the debugger you wish with a NodeJS preferences, you set a breakpoint in the tern.js file (ex: where completion is executed). You open a JS editor and you do Ctrl+Space and debugger stops to the breakpoint. So now it's very easy to debug ternjs with Eclipse IDE.
I believe the purpose is first to create a regular JS debugger for regular JS development. The use case you mention (debugging ternjs which is used by the IDE or debugging of ternjs extensions) is a corner-case that is not the main target of this development.
That said, when we've managed to get a generic JS debugger working, then we could either tweak to start nodejs/tern as a debugged _javascript_ process using the Debug Configuration (so Webclipse and Nodeclipse should provide extension for JSDT's Debug Configuration directly), or we could wrap the Debug Configuration as an extension of The 1st approach is by far my favourite as it is a better factorization of debug effort.
