How to debug into jar SRC files in Intellij

Squadless asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-17
I am trying to debug an application and if i step into a breakpoint it takes me to the attached .jar files .. however they only contain compiled declarations and do not show the actual implementation of the methods... to fix that I attached the file.jar and the file-src.jar ... one is the jar, one is the src jar... But still when i debug and try to go INTO the method from that class it will NOT take me into the SRC jar... how can i debug INTO an attached SRC jar and not the class JAR??

This is using IntelliJ Idea 7.0.3
