Description Martin Entlicher 2013-04-23 12:56:42 UTC
In order to be able to introduce property editors for various variable types, we need to create objects in the debugger's JVM, that would mirror the objects in the target JVM represented by the variables.

Therefore it's proposed to add methods like:
Object createMirrorObject()
void setFromMirrorObject(Object obj)
