Breakpoints aren't hit/working in maven project.


Breakpoints stopped working in my maven project. It doesn't matter where I set them but the program path runs through to completion.

Following are the releveant system specs:
IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2.3 (Ultimate Edition)
Build #IU-182.4323.46, built on September 3, 2018
JRE: 1.8.0_152-release-1248-b8 x86_64
JVM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM by JetBrains s.r.o
macOS 10.13.6

System installed Java:
Java 10.0.1 2018-04-17
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 18.3 (build 10.0.1+10)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 18.3 (build 10.0.1+10, mixed mode)


Oi oi oi oi oi oi OI......
I solved it by removing the .idea and .iml directory and file. I noticed that, when I copied the code to a new project (created 2 updates prior), the debugger could trap on the exact some line of code, so that got me thinking that perhaps things have changed with IJ and thus I "re-imported" the project.


Thank you for letting us know what was the solution.

Also, I see you are using a pretty old version of IntelliJ. 
You should consider updating to the latest release:, as a lot of bugfixes and feature requests have been implemented since the version you are currently using.
