Must be added so that third parties can add connectprs or transports.
Would like to see understanding of tools companies and other licensees who have requested this feature and an understanding of how we will work with them in defining and testing of the feature.
This feature will allow some licensees, such as Symbian (Nokia, Ericson, Motorola, etc) to debug their applications on their embedded devices. It's been requested by their licensee support engineer several months ago. Being that it's just an API that others can write custom code for their configurations, little work with them is neccesary - we just need to define the hooks so that they can plug in a custom module and then debug their code.
This feature has been implemented for tiger. Specifically, JDI now
has a provider mechanism so that 3rd party Connectors can be developed
and deployed. Additionally, TransportServices can be developed and
deployed. JDI will encapsulated any installed TransportService
implementations with attaching and listening Connectors. On the
debuggee-side a native transport interface has been defined so that
3rd party transport libraries can be loaded by the JDWP agent.
