Programming languages: Python and Java VS Code extensions get these new updates

Microsoft has released the March update for its popular Python extension for Visual Studio Code (VS Code), its widely used cross-platform code editor. It’s also released an update for Java on VS Code with support for the IDE extension, SonarLint.   

The most notable change in the Python for VS Code update is a new Microsoft-built Python debugger called debugpy, an implementation of the Debug Adapter Protocol for Python. The tool allows developers to debug script files and modules from the command line, as well as enable debugger logging. 

Until now, VS Code had built-in debugging support for JavaScript, TypeScript, Node.js, and so on, while extensions from the VS Code marketplace enabled support for other languages like Python, Go, C# and C++. 

Microsoft has also made it easier to attach dpbugpy to processes running on the user’s machine.
