I simply need to debug my simple 10-15 lines java programs.
I need a simple GUI stand alone debugger where I can debug programs line by line. (I dont want to use an IDE like Eclipse. I just need light weight stand alone debugger with good GUI)
Any suggestions?

Thanks!
Rohit K.

As a standalone debugger I quite like JSwat. There are two versions: 2.x for Java 1.4 and 3.x for Java 5.0.

System.out.println(); is one of the best debugger's you can come across,

you can print out different variables at different points in the client,

and see exactly what's happening in your application...

I call this a poor debugging process. Rohit wants to trace "line by line".

and see exactly what's happening in your application


You won't see what's happening unless you print out all the references needed. I think this is a waste of time.

Ulf's JSwat seems pretty nice.
