Zulu 7 and 8 with debug symbols

Hi folks,

once in a while I need to debug Sun’s private classes, unfortunately, Oracle’s JDK does neither contain line information nor method variables. Can you provide Zulu with all debug symbols in Java classes to make debugging easier?
My dev platform is Windows 7 64 bit with Eclipse.

Hello Michaelo, we have been able to generate and send debug symbol files (PDBs on Windows) once in a long while to Zulu Enterprise subscribers through their support entitlements. We have not seen anywhere near sufficient demand to make this a community offering, however, because the extra cost on our side to setup and manage a symbol server (which would be my personal preference!) doesn’t have the cost/benefit without volume. Any chance you would consider a Zulu Enterprise subscription? Then fulfillment is included. Let me know either way. Thanks. Matt

You missunderstood my request. I am not talking about native code, but about `java -g` for Java classes only.
