Using Eclipse as Node Applications Debugger · joyent/node Wiki · GitHub
Yes, I know these links. Did you try to debug a web application with any of the suggested methods?
Nope, I hadn't.
Assuming that you are interested in hybrid app development, you could use CordovaSim for livereload / debugging stuff
Please, have a look at my blog - JBoss Tools - Brand new BrowserSim / CordovaSim features
The blog contains a short demo video that covers js debugging, eclipse console logging and livereload.
Crossfire has not been updated for two years. Does it work with recent Firefox versions? I don't even see how to start the Crossfire server in Firefox/Firebug. The button for that is supposed to be on status bar, but Firefox no longer has a status bar.
< all I can see in your blog about debugging is a screenshot of the Chrome debugger
The blog also contains demo video. Here is the direct link - https://vimeo.com/109909395
However, I guess this is not you are interested in, cause one won't be able to debug js inside eclipse editor via BrowserSim / CordovaSim anyways.

I started this thread here (and similar ones in other places) just to check out all the candidates like Eclipse Platform/JSDT, JBoss Tools, Nodeclipse and to make sure I wasn't missing anything not so obvious.
Any suggestion for a better forum to address this topic to a wider community of Eclipse users would be very welcome.
oh - i'm very aware and interested in utilizing nashorn etc. for better execution and debugging.
The reason why Eclipse is lacking behind is that the whole team that did JSDT from IBM moved off Eclipse and started other things, one is their Orion project.
We (Red Hat) now is lead of JSDT (via Victor Rubezhny) but that is just one person for now so he/we been cleaning up more grave bugs/issues for a while now. Working our way through things like false validations, memory issues and just general base issues.
For things like debugging and extra new features we are definitely looking for contributions.
Wether you do that conversation here or join the wtp-dev mailing list is up to you. In both cases we'll be listening and help where we can if someone wants to explore/contribute.
Interesting - I didn't know that Red Hat had taken over JSDT. The Eclipse project page only mentions IBM contacts. Orion - well, I don't think the world has been waiting for a mutilated IDE running in the browser...
It's sad to see that Eclipse seems to be losing both corporate and community support, and regarding the latter, IMHO Eclipse Foundation is doing their best to scare off potential contributors by their ridiculous amount of paperwork and process guidelines. In the age of GitHub, a pull request should be sufficient to make a contribution.
Anyway, I've been exploring Nashorn debugging a bit, working directly with JDI and Nashorn DebuggerSupport. Now the next question is how this fits into the big picture of JSDT and JDT. I'll start a new thread on the wtp-dev mailing list.
Ah, we'll get the project page updated.
I'm not sure what paperwork you consider ridiculous - its a click of a button on "I'm allowed to contribute this". If you see it as more complicated let me know.
I agree GitHub PR's are easier, but with Gerrit enabled on JSDT things should be easier.
I saw your mail on wtp-dev and i'll follow up there.
