What for do you need this feature? I never restart IDEA while debugging.

Mmm ... I think we're in different places.

If I enter an expression to watch ( like fred.getBeltSize() ), then I decide this program is too horrendous to finish debugging right now. So I quit IDEA, head home, see a movie, go out for a beer or two with a few mates; chill out basically.

Then I come back the following morning, refreshed, keen and ready to squash me some bugs; mad for it basically. I open up IDEA and restart the program I was debugging the day before ... but fred.getBeltSize() is no longer there. So I have to enter it again, along with mary.getHatSize()and quentin.getNoseLength().

So what I was wondering was, is there a way to save these debug watches between sessions?

A similar situation: When I'm debugging one of our servers, there is
generally a set of breakpoints and watchpoints that I will setup. For
another of our servers, I would use a different. If it were possible, I
would save these debugger settings under some name and load as appropriate.
