Hi,

I installed the latest release of Kepler and opened by existing workspace with it. All the other aspects of the Kepler release seem fine but when I run up the debugger and hit a break point I'm not able to "step in" to method calls using either the icon on the toolbar or using the shortcut key. Also when I "step over" with F6 or I have to then go and click on the executing line in the debug/stack trace window for it to take effect in the editor window. e.g. the step does occur but isn't reflected in the editor window. Is anyone else seeing this as I wasn't able to find anything in this forum.

As noted I'm on the latest Kepler standard build. Win 7 64-bit.

Thanks,
Warwick

I've seen key bindings for F5-F8 stop working in the middle of a debug sessions, but I never experienced a situation where only the editor fails to follow the debugging process. Does the Variables view update correctly while stepping?
Do you have any other Java related plugins installed?

Yes the variables view updates correctly. Its just the editor view. I have Subclipse installed for subversion access but no other java dev plugins. Its a fresh install.

Thanks,

Does it work fine with the previous Kepler release in the same workspace ?

Is there any entry in the error log ?

There's nothing in the error log. And no I didnt have the same problem with Kepler SR1, but I did have other problems. Mainly with connecting and getting the thread stack visible, and also with stepping in that I was unable to consistently step. The stack would disappear and often I would lose the thread I was tracing and would need to look for the small arrow in the empty Debug view that indicates the thread that I was debugging in. I'm currently using Indigo to debug because I wasn't able to get any of the later versions of eclipse to debug correctly. I still have the same problems with Indigo with the missing stack information and having to find the arrow for my break point again but its less often and I can step in the Indigo debugger.

So back to Kepler SR2, I've tried a new workspace but the same problem is happening with stepping and as noted I don't see any errors in the error log view. So here is the behavior: When I step with F6

- I need to click into the Debug window for the step to take effect in the edit window. i.e. it stays on the previous line in the source until I click into the debug window.
- The line number shown for the current position in the source file doesn't change in the debug window. Even though I've stepped 10 lines the line number in the debug window shows I'm at the line I hit with the break point.
- Contrary to what I had said in my reply Stephan Hermann the Variables view does _not_ update with each stepped line. I have to click into the Variables view for the list of variables to refresh as well.
- I tried to use the "step over" icon in the Eclipse toolbar and its stopped working altogther now. I'm not able to step with F6 anymore and the step icons on the toolbar have all been disabled as if I'm stepping. When I click on a previous frame in the thread stack it now tells me that its an invalid stack frame.

Thanks,
Warwick
