Accepted answer

To put breakpoints in your code, double click in the left margin on the line you want execution to stop on. You may alternatively put your cursor in this line and then press Shift+Ctrl+B.

To control execution use the Step Into, Step Over and Step Return buttons. They have the shortcuts F5, F6 and F7 respectively.

To allow execution to continue normally or until it hits the next breakpoint, hit the Resume button or F8.


Googling gives many sites... Debugging with the Eclipse platform for one.


Breakpoints are just used to check the execution of your code, wherever you will put breakpoints the execution will stop there, so you can just check that your project execution is going forward or not. To get more details follow link:-


Put breakpoints - double click on the margin. Run > Debug > Yes (if dialog appears), then use commands from Run menu or shortcuts - F5, F6, F7, F8.
