i'm evaluating 4.0 build 1178 (running on xp home, 3.0 GHz PIV, 1.0 Ghz RAM). i've used v3.04 fairly extensively before now. in my experience with 3.04, i'd encountered many of the debugger bugs already listed in the tracker but just bit my tongue and lived with them.
now i've encountered this bug in 4.0 and wondered if it anybody else has run into it and if so, how can i sort it out?:
sometimes (sometimes not) when i run the debugger, instead of IDEA displaying the source code of the java file into which i've placed the breakpoints, it displays the class file view of the file instead. that is, instead of the little "j" icon to the left of the file name in the name tab, there is a "01" icon instead. and annoyingly, i cannot see the source code as i step through the debugger. what i see is the method signatures and the comment, "/* compiled code */" in place of the actual code.
this happens even though the class i'm debugging IS in fact in my project's source path and also even if i already have the java source file open when i run the debugger (or even if it's closed for that matter).
please tell me how i can prevent this. IDEA is a brilliant tool. i am as impressed with it - overall - as everybody else is. but when my evaluation period is up, i will feel very reluctant to fork over my dough considering some of the bugs that are present.
thanks in advance.
