Has anyone successfully been able to configure ArcGIS 10 to use PyDev's debugging server for debugging? How do you set that up? I have PyDev working fine by itself, with ArcPy working fine, but I can't bind the debugger to scripts I run from ArcToolbox. I notice you can specify a debugger in ArcGIS, so I was wondering if it's possible to use the PyDev debug server. Anyone have opinions/tips/guidance?
http://pydev.org/manual_adv_remote_debugger.html looks like it has instructions that will do the trick.
You'll have to make some additions to your python code itself, specifically:
Make an addition to sys.path so it includes the path for pydevd.py from the Eclipse plugin (Alternatively, you could set the PYTHONPATH environment variable).
Import the pydevd module and call pydevd.settrace().
