JSwat is a graphical Java debugger front-end, written to use the Java Platform Debugger Architecture and based on the NetBeans Platform. Its features include sophisticated breakpoints; colorized source code display with code navigator; movable display panels showing threads, call stack, visible variables, and loaded classes; command interface for more advanced features; and Java-like expression evaluation, including method invocation.
This project is effectively discontinued as of 2013. It is known not to work with Java 8 and possibly even Java 7. No one is working on this project any more. Please have a look at one of the much better alternatives.
Built on NetBeans
JSwat is built on the NetBeans Platform, using some additional modules from the NetBeans IDE.
