An answer for JBuilder3

Posted by Wensheng Deng on November 27, 2000 at 3:17 PM

> Using Forte ver 1.0 build 849. I am using the debugger to step through the Java API classes (i.e. java.util.hashmap). I have pulled all of the .java source out of the .jar files which enabled me to step through the API code in Forte. But when I set variable watch points in these api classes I cannot see their values. The only thing that I have not done was pull the .jar files out of the classpath.

> I have tried other Java IDE debuggers and still get the same results.

> Any ideas on how I can view the values of these variables?

Hi Joe,

With JBuilder3, one can enable or disable tracing into classes.
From menu View|Loaded Classes, you could get a list of packages
and classes loaded with tracing enabled or disabled. One could
make changes by right-clicking. Make sure you have a clear path from the package to the class. See built-in help for more info.
Don't forget to restart debugger after you make a change.

Hope this helps.
