JPDA (Java) Debugger Threads View Enhancements module on NetBeans Plugin Portal
By sandipchitale on Nov 21, 2007
This module unifies Threads and Call stack view (somewhat like Eclipse Java Debugger Threads View). The call stack frames are shown as the children of suspended thread in the Threads view. It supports same actions on as Call Stack view and more. For example, it shows actions to jump to types of local variable of a Call stackframe as well as the Show Classes action. It also shows full method signature of the Call stack frame. It additionally shows the actual class of the 'this' variable if it differs from the class that declares the method of the call stack frames.
The Show Classes action shows all the classes loaded in the JVM along with the loading and initiating ClassLoaders. This is useful for debugging class loading in multi-ClassLoder appications such as NetBeans itself.
