Debugging under OTDRE
The byte code executed at runtime doesn't directly match the structure of source code. For OTRE we have extensive support to hide this difference as much as possible and to enhance the visualization of some synthetic stack frames in the debug view. For OTDRE a similar level of support should be provided.

  • debugger needs to refresh internal cache after redefineClasses [511696] (target milestone: 2.6 M6)
