Eclipse: Hitting A Breakpoint After The Fact

· Java Zone

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

Ever wonder how to hit a breakpoint after you've passed it? You can do this with the Eclipse Java debugger. Here's how I do it:

  1. Stop at a breakpoint
  2. Realize that you want to step through a method called a few lines back
  3. Put a breakpoint in that method
  4. Highlight an expression that uses the method in the java editor and from the context menu select Inspect
That should do it! Before you see the value in the inspection pop-up, your debugger should hit the breakpoint that you just created. Very cool.
