Show Current Program Execution Point doesn't work for me

Hi all,

I'm running IntelliJ 5.0 and I'm finding that the "Show Current Program Execution Point" feature doesn't work for me. I click it and it does nothing. Similarly, while debugging, I'm not seeing the line advance alongside the debugger, even though the dropdown on the debugger tells me what line it's executing.

Is this a bug in IntelliJ 5.0? I'm using Linux and I've tried a Sun 1.4 JDK and now am using the 1.5.0_06 JDK - neither work. I'm debugging with a remote Tomcat server (it's actually local, but I've set it to debug remotely because I don't want to launch it from within IntelliJ).

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Tom

Hello Tom,

you most probably tweaked debugger current line color setting in Settings|Color&Fonts.
Try reverting to default scheme. Do you see the line then?

Hi Maxim,

My colors are set to "default" and I cannot find an option that looks like "current line color" associated with the debugger in either the Colors&Fonts section or in the Debugger section. If you could provide me with the exact name/location for that feature I could check it.

Thanks,
Tom

Also, I don't think it's just the color settings, because as I step through the program, if the execution ends up switching source files or locations in a single source file, the new file doesn't get brought up and scrolled to. It just looks like it's not working at all, not that it's working but without colors.

Thanks,
Tom

Do you have multiple sourses on (lib)path, ie. in zip and on directory?
Sometimes editor (or user) opens wrong version of identical files ;)

Looks like it reproducible here too. I can post thread dump where Tomcat looks hangs but actualy it stopped on break point and Idea not know about this :(

I can see that as being a potential problem too, but the part that doesn't make sense, even if that were the case, is that as someone steps through a program they'll often step into source files that they don't have open. At that point, most IDEs (including the old IntelliJ) will open the source file that maps to the code you've stepped into.

I haven't seen this new version of IntelliJ open any source files. Even if I had duplicates somehow, wouldn't it try to open one of them?

Thanks,

Hi All,

With the help of JetBrains support I was able to resolve this issue. It turns out I'm using an unsupported version of Tomcat (4.1.x). So, if I configure IntelliJ just to connect to a remote JVM, instead of configuring it to connect to a Tomcat server, I find everything works fine.

Thanks for the help, hopefully this answer will help others.
