I think I have something like this implemented.  Would either of you want to try it and see if it fits your needs?  I use JDEE to launch programs, so this isn't something I am going to spend a lot of time on without outside input.

You can download the code from subversion at https://jdibug.googlecode.com/svn/branches/sync, or I can upload a new tarfile to download.

If you run from subversion, you'll need to run "make" in the top level directory.

To use the feature, customize jdibug-run-* as appropriate, then to M-x jdibug-run.  (It should also be on the jdibug menu.)

Hi Troy,

Thanks for maintaining jdibug. I have been a jdibug users for a
while. Jdibug was one of the reasons that I could use emacs as Java IDE
instead of Eclipse.

I am developing J2EE web application, debug information is configured
in application server. So the configuration for using jdibug is pretty
simple for me, just set jdibug-connect-hosts.

But the configuration is not that straight forward for even debug a
simple HelloWorld java class. If jdibug can provide a simple interface
for configuration and start debugger, it will encourage more users to
give a try. For example, just provide a simple function to set up
vm-args, run program and start debugger.
