Unable to install breakpoint in Eclipse: Absent Line Number Information

I have a Java 1.6.0 web application that I am developing using a Kepler Version 2 Eclipse development environment. I am using an Oracle Weblogic Server Administration Console 12c.

I'm running the app locally - and trying to debug it. Instead of stopping at any of the breakpoints I've set - I get the following error:

When I installed the application to Weblogic, I ran the Weblogic console and then installed the application by adding the ear file.

I thought I did everything exactly the same as previous web applications I've done this way - but I was always able to debug those applications.

Also - one other thing that is different. When make any changes and re-build the ear file - I actually have to delete and reinstall from the Weblogic console for the changes to take place. I'm thinking this might be related.

Any suggestions?

If you are compiling using Eclipse, verify the class file generation options.

Go to windows > preferences > Java > compiler screen.

Make sure that Add line number attributes to generated files (used by debugger) check box is checked. If you want, you can check the others as well.
