Re: R: Stored Procedure debugger from Peter Gulutzan and Trudy Pelzer


Hi Federico,

I don't want to show critisism against projects like this - I hope that this is clear. There are many debuggers, and they are more than welcome. Even Oracle has a debugger, if you use Windows and Visual Studio (sigh).

The debugger supports the things you mention. At least during my 10
minute trial I experimented with breakpoints and context inspection,
everything worked like a charm. I don't know about inspecting the
call stack, didn't try to. But it seems it does.

But I still think that MariaDB needs a native debug API, which fully supports checkpoints/flow control, context inspection and exposes the call stack. I doubt that an external debugger that transparently adds debug code could possibly replace it, especially if your business logic is complex. I've tried to write a debug library in SQL - the problems I've found make me seriously doubt on the possibility to follow this path.
