help in tracing

  Asked By: Rabiah    Date: Jul 03    Category: Java    Views: 840

I have to trace a lot of code, does someone know a program (bettre
an eclipse plug-in) that can help me in tracing the methods of my
applications? I mean, I'd like to avoid writing System.out.println
(...) for each method.

I think you haven't explored the debug feature in
eclipse. We can debug both ordinary java programs and
eclipse plug-ins as well. It is comparable to any

Just double click a line of code  where you want to put
a breakpoint, and Run-> Debug As ->Run-time workbench.

FYI: More information about eclipse  and its plug-ins
can be found on the eclipse discussion forum at
