Chapter 7. Views

Eclipse has so many different views and toolbars that it’s easy to get overwhelmed trying to decipher them all. Consider this part of the book to be your own personal secret decoder ring.

Breakpoints View

The Breakpoints view (in the Debug perspective) shows a list of all the breakpoints you have set in your projects. Use it to enable and disable breakpoints, edit their properties, and set exception breakpoints (which trigger a stop when a Java exception occurs). Table 9 lists the commands on the Breakpoints view toolbar.
