Debugger access to static class data


I have been looking for a way to look at static class data. I can of course see the static fields values while break-pointing through the code, providing the code has a reference to the static class instance. But when I am executing on a different thread or after the stack frame pops that has the reference, the classes and their fields are not visible.

I remember having such a capability in JBuilder Enterprise about 5 years ago and I and surprised it is not obvious in IntelliJ IDEA. I have tried pausing the debugger and looking around the threads with no luck.

Does anyone know if JetBrains has implemented such a feature?
