Eclipse Debug Tools Infrastructure

The debug tools infrastructure plug-in, org.eclipse.debug.core, defines a model for language independent debugging. A set of common debug artifacts and actions are defined by interfaces, for which specific debug architectures may provide implementations. For example, some common artifacts are threads, stack frames, and variables; some common actions are terminate, suspend, step, and resume. A debug architecture, such as JDI (Java Debug Interface), can provide an implementation of the artifacts and actions. The debug plug-in also defines and provides an implementation of managers to support breakpoints and launching.
