Description radaczynski 2008-12-30 12:42:53 UTC
I cannot choose any module outside the project as the main module. I would like to debug /usr/bin/paster, this is
impossible in netbeans (it is possible in pydev, that is a reference for me as for now).
Comment 1 jymen 2009-01-10 13:12:33 UTC
I am not sure this request is python debugger specific , but perhaps more concerning Netbeans IDE features on which
python debugger must rely upon for its available actions
Can you provide mode details about what is requested here and either reassign the ticket to Netbeans IDE if the features
is concerning all languages or to me if it's pythons debugger specific
Comment 2 radaczynski 2009-01-11 19:45:09 UTC
Correct, this is an issue for all languages, not only for python. 
Comment 3 Martin Entlicher 2009-02-24 13:03:20 UTC
This can not be a defect for debuggercore without specification of what exactly does it wrong.
Please evaluate in python debugger first and if you need something from debuggercore, submit an enhancement. Thanks.
Comment 4 jymen 2009-02-24 15:18:58 UTC
The real request here is :

- capability of running/debugging a file which is located outside a project.

This is not a python debugger or debuggercore issue but a netbeans IDE issue : being able to run/debug a file located on
file system and not belonging to any netbeans project. Since the user is coming from Eclipse the 'debug perspective' in
Eclipse allows to set a non belonging project file as the main module of a debugging configuration.

AFAIK : In Netbeans it is not possible to access files located outside projects and there is no independant configurable
'debug perspective'.

I don't know how to handle that request or to whom to send it  
Comment 5 radaczynski 2009-04-14 12:53:34 UTC
OK, so perhaps this issue should have been an enhancement to make it possible to choose some file outside of the 
project as the main entry point. This would solve a lot of the framework debugging stuff (my example would probably 
suffice to use netbeans with pylons-driven projects). 

So, I change the type, please reassign it to whoever is suited to receive this report. Thanks.

This looks logical to me and I don't think we have the resources to address this anyway. Closing this.
Comment 7 Jiri Kovalsky 2017-06-23 08:06:22 UTC
Thanks for your evaluation Julien. Reporter, if you think your issue is still valid and needs to be addressed, don't hesitate to reopen it with additional information. Closing for now.
