I've just submitted my proposal to implementing the debugger on GSOC site. I've checked out the trunk and try to figure out what needs to be done and if it is manageable to finish this project in the summer. Here is a copy of my proposal and I'd really like to hear your suggestions. Thanks a lot!
Thanks for the proposal. If you've worked with Processing before, it's very helpful to see samples / documentations of projects you've made. If you haven't worked with Processing then any documentation of Java based development.
I wrote some simple sketches back when processingjs 1.0 was launched. I made a very simple tool that you can drop pjs files in a folder then it would generate a site for you. Here's the source and here's a running one with some basic examples by me.
I used Java to implement a web app for editing natural language ontology files for a school project. Here's the code. I don't have a Tomcat server at the moment so I can't get it running. It's a single page ajax web app. The backend is using Java serverlet and a custom class to read and parse the ontology file.
As a Math teacher in a french school, I'm going to teach "computer science" next year (2 hours per week for pre "bacalaureat" pupils). I may use Processing as a development langage and environment and would be very interested in using a debugger.
The features you propose would completely cover my needs. As the machines we have in our classes are never the most powerful and up to date ... a basic but light-weight (maybe command line) debugging tool would be much more helpful than an even more powerful and user-friendly but too CPU and memory consuming one.
If you are interested by alpha or beta tester for you future debugger, feel free to contact me.
