This long term bug 6294277 about SourceDebugExtension attribute greater than 64K has been fixed in the latest OpenJDK8 b48 release:


Would it b possible to retrofit this highly important fix on the JDK6 and JDK7?

This is specially important when running java code produced by tools like ANTLR or others compiling tools providing a huge smap file. Without this fix, there is no way to debug the generated java code... and debugging becomes a nightmare by just using logging traces.

Thank for you attention on this issue.
