I'm a .net developer and in VS one can add breakpoints to the code and step through it.  What is the equivalent of that in Java/ Eclipse?

You can also add one or more breakpoints in eclipse (or netbeans). Then you have to run the program in debug mode.

In case it doesn't show this in the link, just like in Visual Studio there is a shaded, thin column on the left side of the code pane in Eclipse.  You can toggle breakpoints there in the same fashion you would in VS.

The simple way to debug from there, is to click on the bug button to execute your code versus the play button link which should prompt you to change perspectives to debug, then the above link should be good resource from there.

Hope that helps.
