How to debug using Eclipse?

Hi,
When I start the eclipse 2.0 with Java VM 1.4, I cannot debug my java code in this environment.
First I set the breakpoint, then I choose debug mode to run the project, it stopped but I can not use step into/over/return these functions, since they are unhighlighted.
The breakpoint window is also empty, "Unkown" method is shown there.
So Could U tell me waht is the problem when I start to debug ?
Thanks,
Roy

Mhh, works for me...
There are some known bugs in JDK 1.4.0, which are resolved in 1.4.1 regarding the debug API - but I think the symptoms you describe are pointing to another problem.

Hi,Ilja,
Thanks for Ur reply, I have tried with the JDK1.3.1 and start the eclipse without the VM setting, then I got my breakpoint in the breakpoint window, but the step into/over/return /resume/suspend/terminate these functions still can not be used.
Do I need to set anything else?
Thanks,
Roy

Roy,
did you select your running application in the debug view?

Ilja,
Ja, I select the debug perspective only, but not the debug view, so it didn't work.
Now it works -- so great thanks!!
Have a nice weekend,
Roy
