Hmm, good question. We're talking about debugging the VM core, the C 
side of things, right?

You can probably start up eclipse in CDT mode with -application command 
line switch, and passing the right class. How you'd switch it over to 
debugger view from command line, I don't know, possibly through the use 
of some system properties, I assume. Then you've still got the problem 
that you don't have an associated project, so elipse may not be able to 
find the sources ...

I guess you could start the other way round, by creating a project for 
kaffe in eclipse and importing it. If you manage to do that, I'd be 
interested in seeing the project file.
