Filter Groovy internal stack frames
We have put some effort into debug support and there is one new UI feature that should be described for this release.
Under the covers, Groovy uses reflection to achieve much of its dynamicism. This can be problematic when using the Eclipse debugger since all of the internal stack frames are exposed to the user. There is a new option in Groovy-Eclipse to de-emphasize these stack frames and highlight show user stack frames:
Notice how the user stack frames are in black. This option can be enabled/disabled and tweaked from the Groovy -> Debugger preferences page:
You can find more details on the Groovy-Eclipse Roadmap, where you can comment on proposed features and see our release schedule.
