Abstract:Programming-language research has introduced a considerable number of advanceddispatching mechanisms in order to improve modularity. Advanced-dispatching mechanisms allow changing the behavior of a function without modifying their call site and thus make the local behavior of code less comprehensible. Debuggers are tools, thus needed, which can help a developer to comprehend program behavior but current debuggers do not provide inspection of advanced-dispatching-related language constructs. This thesis presents a debugger which extends a traditional Java debugger with the ability of debugging on an extended debugger architecture that preserves advanced-dispatching language constructs and a user interface for inspecting this
