If I enable Tools > Options > Miscellaneous > Java Debugger > Stop on uncaught exceptions, I would expect Netbeans to stop on an uncaught exception, but it doesn't.
throws an ArithmeticException but the debugger does not stop. Or
throws an ArrayIndexOutOfBounds error, but again the debugger doesn't stop, so I can't see the variable values at the point of the exception.
Does anyone have any idea why this might be and how I can fix it?
I tried the same examples in Eclipse and the debugger there stopped as expected, so I might have to switch IDEs if I can't work this out.
