I have some files that run correctly.  When I try to set a Watchpoint I get this error: "The operation is unavailable on the current selection.  Please select or place the cursor on a field."

I the selected several variables and I get the same error.
What might I be doing wrong?

I call it a Breakpoint.

Breakpoints must be put on statements, not on declarations.

Can you show us the code fragment and the line you put the breakpoint on?

JOOP! thanks, I am getting along based on what you wrote.  The I have another question along the same vain.  When I hover over schemaDoc at this line; Document schemaDoc = builder.build(schemaURL);
I get the popup window with the content of schemaDoc.  This window branchs out to hundreds of nodes (if you will).  Question; Is there a key stroke/command that will expand "ALL" of the nodes?  Or is the a SEARCH command that allows me to find the text I am looking for?

The content assist is very complex now.
If you are using ECLIPSE 3.4, go look here:
http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/R-3.4-200806172000/whatsnew3.4/eclipse-news.html

and click on:

(Printer friendly version covering all of Eclipse.)

That will explain all you are looking for.
And keep it as a manual.

Let's be grateful that we live in an area where all this fantastic software is free.

20 years ago JAVA JDK would have been $2000 and ECLIPSE $50,000 !!!
