Groovy, Jython and others... how to debug?

Hello all!

I'm going to embed a scripting engine in our application, which is basically is a GUI testing f/w. Since some scripts are going to be relatively big and complex (100-200 lines) i need to provide a support for debugging (step-by-step execution and locals watches at least).
I think I will create a simple editor for this, or maybe reuse some existing if possible - Eclipse+plugin maybe?
Which of the popular engines is most suitable for this task?
I will appreciate any comments, if someone did same thing already.


cheers,<br />Igor Romanov

we've got a whole forum dedicated to Object Oriented Scripting languages, so I'm going to move this thread. Please post your replies there. Thanks!
I agree. Here's the link:
