[Debugger] Does "Drop To Frame" work on Mac OS X? [message #480898] Tue, 18 August 2009 19:21 Go to next message

I recently switched to using a Mac for all my Eclipse/Java development.
Something I've noticed is that I can't get the Drop To Frame function to
be enabled. I've read that the JVM has to support that part of the debug
API, but I can't believe that neither the 1.5 or 1.6 Mac JVMs supports
this - really?
Does it work for anyone? Is there any documentation about which JVMs
support it and which do not?

TIA,
Eric

Works for me in I20090811-0800 with JDK 1.5.0.

Note that 'drop to frame' does not work for all frames (e.g. it's not
supported on the top frame of a stack and AFAIR, there are also
limitations for callbacks from native code).

To see what your VM supports, go to the Debug view, select the process,
choose Properties, go to the VM Capability page and check the 'Stepping'
section.
