I am working on embedded development (Set-Top Box). We have a proprietary software stack and application layer is written in Java. When we build the entire software stack, we get a single file which we run on the device (STB).

Is there any tool which can provide Eclipse-like debug-functionality for my Java Application that got bundled along with other components in the software stack to create a single OUT file that is flashed on the STB?

Thanks in advance

I think someone involved with the project would have to write an Eclipse plugin. It's hard to say, because we have very little information.

Do you just create Java programs based on some kind of proprietary API? If so, someone could make an emulator for your set top box, although this is a lot of work.

We create Java programs using standard Java libraries but we have a customised Virtual Machine that runs a single optimized file created from the numerous class files. Something like .dex file of Android.

I don't think we can use Eclipse plug-in for our purpose. I was mentioning of any tool that can provide functionality similar to Eclipse Debug functionality.
