WebOS: No Debugger Under Eclipse

Palm Pre developers can spin this any way they want but it’s currently not possible to set breakpoints using Eclipse, break on a line, inspect the variables or anything else debug-wise from within the IDE. It seems you have to use a command-line debugger.

I know it’s not like it’s _impossible_ to use but are we really expected to enter the full path to a line in the code to set a break point e.g.

var/usr/palm/applications/com.yourdomain.test/app/assistants/stage-assistant.js:5

I’m not sure what to say about this? My expectations were somewhat higher.
