Currently, if a Java program is to be debugged, the VM has to
be started with special debugging options, eg, -Xdebug -Xrunjdwp.....

It should be possible to to attach a debugger to an already
running VM that was not started with these options.  

This would be especially useful for debugging code run via webstart or
plugin where it is not convenient to add these special debugging options to the
command line.
