Google software engineer Alexander Pavlov has announced the release of ChromeDevTools for Eclipse users. ChromeDevTools enables JavaScript debugging inside the browser over the TCP/IP-based ChromeDevToolsProtocol using Eclipse and consists of two components: an SDK and a debugger.

The SDK includes a Java API to enable communication over TCP/IP with Google Chrome or its Chromium counterpart. The debugger, a plug-in for Eclipse that uses the SDK, lets developers debug JavaScript running within Chrome from the Eclipse IDE. Using ChromeDevTools, developers can inspect variables, set breakpoints and evaluate expressions. ChromeDevTools requires version 3.4.2 or later of Eclipse and Google Chrome or Chromium version or later.

More details about ChromeDevTools can be found on the project's Google Code web page and in Pavlov's announcement post on The Chromium Blog. ChromeDevTools is released under a New BSD License. The developers also note that all feedback and contributions are welcomed.
