I am trying to develop a Java application to debug VirtualBox, using the
xpcom interface. I have read the SDK reference, and I found the
specifications for the IMachineDebugger interface. This interface has
methods for checking and modifying register values, memory space, and
even for enabling or disabling single step execution, but I cannot find
any method to execute instructions in a single-step way (equivalent to
the 't' command in the debugger console).
I thought about opening the v.m. in debug mode and using the telnet
debugger on port 5000 (to code a gateway class to manage it from Java),
but I cannot connect to that port in any way.
The version I am using is VirtualBox 4.0.8 r71778.
My questions are:
Is debugging on port 5000 disabled?
Is there any way to execute instructions in single step mode from Java
xpcom or any other programming interface?
Thank you in advance.
