etc. i.e. a lot of headache).
has the "debugger" statement for breaking even in anonymous code blocks,
that the breakpoint UI could be routed to use it.
- When the user asks to add a breakpoint, the code could get a
- When the user writes the debugger directive IntelliJ will realize (and
mark in the gutter) that a breakpoint exists there.
- I can even see conditional breakpoints happening, where the debugger
statement will be put in a conditional statement, but that a second order.
My point is that right now (since the IDE and debugger are 2 different
tools) using debugger breakpoints is in many cases not as straight
forward as using the debugger statement, but now I have to manage my
breakpoints myself (by searching for "debugger", attaching a special
TODO comment and pattern to breakpoints, etc.) which I don't like.
