Embedding the Rhino Debugger

One of the more powerful usages of the Rhino debug support is that it can easily be embedded into your existing server. Embedding the Rhino Debugger allows you to remotely debug the loading and execution of scripts from the Eclipse IDE.

To learn how to embed the Rhino Debugger please go to this page.

Rhino Debug Wire Protocol

To provide support for the Rhino interpreter, we had to create both sides of the coin - the debugger and the client. To facilitate communication between the debugger and the client we created an adapted version of v8 (JSON-based) packet communication.

The complete specification for the RDWP can be found here.
