Well, that all ;)

Debugging backwards in time, you mean? There's the Omniscient Debugger.

I had to google for "reverse debugging" and I found at least one page which claimed that to mean "inserting new bugs into the code", but anyway I don't think it's up to a Java implementation to support that or not to support it. It's up to a debugger to support it or not.
