Debugging a decompiled class



I am running 2016.3.4 Community edition on Linux with JDK 8 x64.


If I understand correctly, IntelliJ has the ability to debug and step through a decompiled Java class. Is that correct? I am remotely debugging my Java application. I have placed breakpoints across several lines of a decompiled class in a JAR dependency. IntelliJ stops at Java classes just fine but it refuses to break in those JAR files.


What are some details that I need to investigate to enable remote debugging?

Could you please provide a sample to reproduce? Could it be that the classes are obfuscated?
