The debugger is an essential tool in any programming environment, as it helps developers understand the dynamic behaviour of software systems. However, traditional debuggers fail in answering domain-specific questions, as the semantics of what they show and do are fixed. In this paper we introduce our work towards a moldable debugger which, unlike traditional debuggers, both adapts itself and can be adapted to a particular debugging context. Thus, it allows developers to answer their questions by using concepts from their own application domains.
