Eclipse: set java breakpoint anywhere in class

I want to debug some code such that execution breaks at any point in a particular class. I could do this by setting a breakpoint in every method, but this would be a bit tedious. Is there an easier way to do this?

I'm not sure I understand what means that executin breaks as any point?
If it throws an excpetion for the beginning you could add
ex.printStackTrace() to the catch loop and it will tell you the exact
line where the error happens - then you can ut breakpoints
and check variables if necessary somewhere close to that place before the exception happens.

I see:
Open the Outline-View for your class ... select all methods ... right-click ... select "Toggle Method Breakpoint"

but I don't see "Toggle Method Breakpoint". I do see Toggle Class Load Breakpoint, which might suffice.

Yes, if you select all methods in the outline view before, then go to Run - Toggle NMethod Breakpoint - and it would
put in all of them

What is the need to put lot of break point in the single class...

put only only one break point in the staring of the class and debug the class ....

when where its calls constructor called automatically then break point will enable press F5 for step by debug F6 for next line inspection !!

better try F6 then you can find error easily !!  

I think this only your asking
