How to run java.exe in Visual Studio

I'd like to use the Visual Studio debugger (VS 2010 Pro in my case) to
set breakpoints and step through the OpenJDK source.  Has anyone
documented how to set up an OpenJDK Visual Studio project?  I'd like VS
to be aware of all the OpenJDK source and the built PDBs.  Also, through
the VS GUI I can attach VS to the running java process, but it might be
better to activate java.exe from VS.  Please let me know if you've
already determined how to do any of this.

Thank you, Pete
