Debugger and Java version

    Eclipse 3.2.2, EPIC 0.6.10, Subclipse 1.2.2, Perl 5.8.8, Padwalker 1.5

    I have been having all sorts of problems with the epic debugger: variables not displaying at all, IO problems (on variable retrieval) and randomly skipping lines when stepping through the code. I tried various versions of EPIC but to no avail.

    It seems the problem was my version of java. I am using Kubuntu 7.04 and the default java installation is: java-1.4.2-gcj-4.1- Instead I installed java-6-sun- and now the debugger works without a hitch. (I am starting eclipse with the -vm option). I hope that this may help anyone facing a similar problem (if it is not an oddity of my installation perhaps it might be useful to put a note on the web page somewhere).

    Thanks to the developers for creating this plugin!

      Interesting. If anyone else can confirm this sort of problems, please do.
