Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenges explained, part of Java Essential Training for Students.
- Throughout this course, you're gonna run across several movies labeled as Challenges. Challenges are hands on opportunities for you to practice and master what you're learning throughout the course. At the beginning of each Challenge I'll give you a clear set of objectives. If there are any sample files, I'll show you where to find those. And I'll also give you a rough estimate of how long each Challenge took me to complete as well. Once you've completed the Challenge, come back and watch the Solution video.
In that Solution video, I'll show you how I completed the Challenge, and give you some insight on my thought process along the way. Again, Challenges are great opportunities for you to practice what you're learning as we progress through this course. But they are also a chance for you to have some fun as well. So be sure to try them out.

Q: How can I make my debugger function like the author’s?
<div>A: When you are debugging your program in NetBeans, if you do not see the new contextual items on the menu bar for stepping into your code, check to see if the source file is accidentally deselected.</div><div> </div><div>Highlight the program you want to debug in your projects folder. In the menu bar, choose Windows > Debugging > Sources. A new window will appear with the file path name. If the checkbox is not selected, click the box to select this file.</div><div> </div><div>Now you can go back to your program and rerun the debug operation on your code.</div>
