Yes, we should have a readline-based jdb replacement that uses JVMTI to
interface to libgcj's bytecode interpreter.  The first step though, is
implementing JVMTI, which is in active development in the gcc repository.

I'll leave this open until we have a jdb replacement, likely for FC-7.

Keith, any chance of a jdb-like command in Fedora 7?
Comment 3 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-04-02 10:42:48 EDT
There are no plans to write a jdb replacement.
