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.

JOOP! thanks, I knew that read about it was an option, and i will read the information at the link you provided.  I was looking for a quick an simple command that would expand all the nodes.  I'll read that link tonight.

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 !!!
