Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using breakpoints, part of Eclipse Essential Training.
- Breakpoints are a tool that enable you to debug…your code more effectively.…You can use them to pause your application…while it's running.…When the application is paused,…you can then check the values…of variables and fix any problems…that you might find.…Note that we're going to cover breakpoints…as they apply to individual languages later on.…In this movie, I just want to give you a general idea…of how to create and manage breakpoints in Eclipse…from sort of a language agnostic perspective.…
So let's say I write some code here.…Now on line six, I'm gonna type some useless code.…Now you don't have to type this code…if you don't want to.…I'm writing a second line here so that I don't…get a warning on line six…because the warning message will actually…cover up the breakpoint.…So let's say I want to add a breakpoint on line six.…One way to add a breakpoint is to right click…the line numbers.…So I'll right click on 6,…and then choose Toggle Breakpoint.…
Note the keyboard shortcut,…Shift Command B, or Shift Control B on the PC.…
