Hi Anita,
Sounds like you are referring to the Debug window.
I've been using VIJ for a few months pretty heavily, so I am getting a bit more familliar with it. I havent't encountered any irregularities of the debugger sometimes recognizing a breakpoint, and other time flow through it without stopping. Are you sure your flow of execution hits the statements with the breakpoints set on them? That is what I would try to check into.

Hi
Thanks for replying me very soon.
I am setting BreakPoints in my java program, and when i run this program i am getting Debugger Screen by itself and shows me all the variable values where i mentioned break points.
But the problem is i am getting this Debugger screen only for some java programs, why i am not getting Debugger screen even i mention break points for some java programs, this is my problem.
Thank u

I would guess, your program, while executing you java
prog., JVM is not going to the line where your break points are.
This could be one possibility depending on the logic.
I can't say more without looking at the code.

I would agree with satya. Can you replicate your debug window problem with a very short, simple program, and post it here? I can put it into VAJ (mistyped it earlier as VIJ) and see what it does for me. By the way, I have vers. 3.02 professional ed. Hope to get v3.5 working soon with fixpack 2.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
