    Comply to the debugger interfaces by wrapping JDI runtime exceptions

    Several of the debugger interfaces we implement expect a ``DebugException`` to
    be thrown when the called method fails to execute. Failure can occur, for
    instance, when a debugger session is terminated by the user. Failing to wrap
    the JDI runtime exception in a ``DebugException`` can prevent the debugger to
    correctly work and the user is sometime forced to restart Eclipse.
    ``DebugException`` is a platform exception that is specially treated by
    If you wonder why do we have calls to ``safeStackFrameCalls`` in, for instance,
    ``ScalaStackFrame.getLineNumber``, the answer is: I don't think we need it. However,
    since we are in RCs cycle for the 3.0 release, I want to minimize the changes in
    this commit to avoid regressions.

    Lazy retrieval of Java parameter names in completions.

    When a completion is selected we need to show the parameter names as placeholders.
    If the method comes from Java, we need to retrieve the Java element, a potentially
    long-running operation that can trigger the structure builder. Instead of retrieving
    all parameter names eagerly, for each completion proposal, we delay it to the
    moment a completion is selected and inserted in the editor.

    Testing presentation compiler when project depends on continuations.jar

    Do not force default location of -XpluginsDir in Scala Compiler Prefe…

    Trying to force the default location to the plugins directory containing the
    continuations.jar plugin turned out to be a very bad idea (this was done as
    part of commit SHA-cbfd82d874f998b7726fec895ad4d83194ad1e5b).
    The issue is that the default location where the continuations.jar is stored
    changes *each time a user updates the Scala IDE* and, when updating, the
    *former location is deleted*. The net effect of this is that after upgrading,
    all projects using the continuations plugin would report the following error
    	`bad option: -P:continuations:enable` is reported
    Simply because the continuations.jar can no longer be located.
    The fix is to somewhat restore the former implementation wrt how we handle the
    `-Xpluginsdir` compiler setting. Basically, the solution consists in not
    showing the default value of `-Xpluginsdir` to the user in the Preferences
    dialog, and pass this default to the different compiler instance we create
    unless the user specifices a different location (in which case, we do use the
    location provided by the user).
    There is one more catch due to the current way `ScalaProject.scalacArguments`
    is implemented (the method is used to pass the compiler arguments to the Sbt
    builder). In short, the returned arguments are only the ones forces by the user
    via the Preference dialog. Since the `-Xpluginsdir` default directory is
    **not** shown in the Preference dialog, the Sbt builder would fail to compiler
    projects with continuations enabled because it wouldn't know where to look for
    the continuations.jar. Hence, I had to add some ad-hoc code to handle this
    correctly in `ScalaProject.scalacArguments`.
    This whole fix is far from ideal, but I want to keep the changeset as small as
    possible to avoid regressions, since this commit should be included in the
    upcoming 3.0.0 release.
    By the way, all existing projects that were affected by the error should
    restore the defaults (Preferences > Scala > Compiler and hit the Restore
    Defaults button).

    More robust against VM exceptions.

      using the Eclipse Error log
    * gracefully handle the common VM exceptions.
    This is not exhaustive (a handful of FIXME notes are still in the codebase),
    but it is a step in the right direction and fixes a number of issues I've
    been seeing lately.

    Possible deadlock fix.

    Two actors sending each-other synchronous messages
    may deadlock. Break the cycle by making one of them
    The cycle is:
    * a classPrepare event is fired, and listeners are
    * a breakpoint is deleted, and the breakpoint support
      actor de-registers from load events.
    I couldn't write a test to exercise this scenario,
    but I think it's worth discussing and see if we can
    ship it as is.
    I moved most sync message sends to `send with timeout`.
    Two sync message sends are still in the code base:
    one for debugging and one for initialising the
    breakpoint manager.

    Faster and slicker Semantic Highlighting

    The former implementation of semantic highlighting was slow becuase of the
    following two reasons:
    First, the annotations created by the semantic highlighting component, where
    invalidated and recomputed every time the compilation unit was reconciled.
    Second, for the current implementation of the AnnotationModel, adding/removing
    an annotation is O(n^ 2). (The quadratic behavior is due to the implementation
    of ``CompilationUnitDocumentProvider#ReverseMap``, which is used by
    Basically, each time an annotation is added/removed, the ``ReverseMap`` class -
    which is backed by a linked list - is accessed to verify if the element exist.)
    The proposed solution is to apply semantic colorings directly on the editor's
    ``TextPresentation`` and hence no longer use the ``AnnotationModel``. This
    approach is both lightweight and orders of magnitude more efficient than the
    The way semantic highlighting works now is relatively simple. At a high level,
    there are only three key elements:
    * ``Presenter$SemanticHighlightingJob``: Given a compilation unit, it
      classifyies and collects all positions that need to be colored in the editor.
    * ``PositionsTracker``: Keeps track of currently highlighted positions in the
    * ``TextPresentationEditorHighlighter$ApplyHighlightingTextPresentationChange``:
      Converts them into   ``StyleRange``s, and applies the styles to the editor's
    Of course the actual implementation contains a bit more than just the above
    mentioned classes, but most of it is needed to correctly handle platform's
    events such as the swapping of the document input (see
    There is however one important optimization that is worth mentioning, which is
    done to reduce to a minimum the editor's region whose styles need to be
    refreshed. Basically, whenever the user is typing in the editor, all positions
    that are **after** the cursor should be invalidated. If you are editing the
    beginning of a big file, almost the whole editor's text presentation would need
    to be refreshed. Furthermore, the mentioned approach would cause colors to
    flicker because all highlighted positions **after** the edit would be deleted
    (and hence the colors would be removed), and the new positions would get
    colored only **after** the semantic highlighting job completes. This is clearly
    not ideal, and it turns out it can be easily avoided by registering a
    ``IPositionUpdater`` on the editor's document. The concrete implementation of
    the listener (i.e., ``Presenter$PositionUpdater``) takes care of shifting -
    through side-effect - all currently highlighted positions that are **after**
    the edited region. The net effect is that colors never flicker.
    Bottom line, with the current implementation semantic highlighting is:
    * Considerably faster.
    * Never flickers.
    * Testable.
    If you wonder why the semantically highlighted positions are not stored in the
    document's model, the answer is that I simply could not see any benefit of
    doing so (why? because the document synchronizes access to the underlying
    position's map when adding/removing positions).  Furthermore, it is really easy
    to add the missing logic for storing the positions in the document's model, if
    in the future it turns out we need/want to do so.
    Fix #1001156
    Other facts about this commit:
    * Added the needed infrastructure for registering reconciling listeners (i.e.,
      ``IJavaReconcilingListener``) to the editor.
    * Created a ``UiThread`` trait needed for testing code that needs to be run
      within the UI Thread.
    Other tickets fixed by this commit:
    * Disabling semantic highlighting in the preferences now refreshes currently
      opened editors. Fixes #1001507
    * Changing semantic highlighting style's preferences now refreshes the
      currently opened editors. Fixes #1001508
    * Cache highlighting styles instead of creating the during
      This optimization has major consequence on the user's experience. I should also
      point out that ``ScalaSyntaxClass`` and ``SymbolTypes``  are quite messy and
      should be improved. However, I think this should be tackled in a different PR.

    The parse-tree changes have been merged in Scala [pull 1982](scala/scala#1982),
    so there is no need for it anymore. Moreover, the presentation compiler must *not* be interrupted
    while parsing on a foreign thread, and that can't be ensured in this commit (but is correctly ensured
    in the Scala changeset). Since this branch is used with 2.9.3, there is a potential for race conditions.

    Make stepping as fast as in the JDT debugger.

    Two performance improvements in the way we handle stack frames:
    * make `variables` lazy. This way we don't retrieve variables values
      unless they are needed (most of the times, they are needed for only one
      frame in a full thread stack). Retrieving values requires a roundtrip
      to the debugged VM, hitting the network stack.
    * don't fire DebugEvents for creation of stack frames. This is the
      time consuming part: each frame (can be hundreds) fires one CREATE
      event that is put in a queue and a job-dispatch is scheduled to run for
      *each* frame in part. This floods the event queue and leads to
      lag times in the order of seconds (depending on the stack depth).
    I checked (in the debugger) that the JDT debugger does not fire CREATE
    events for stack frames, so I'm suggesting we do the same thing.(cherry picked from commit 96de8f0)
