I use eclipse juno & netbeans 7.2 for this:-
I use simple code as below:-

aim:- try to understand whats really happens behind before output seen on screen. I start with simple one...want to go for harder...

scenario:- As i tried in eclipse i can see in lots of variable sets before print statement execute...all variables for class.Some are as follows:-
threadStatus,tid,uncaughtExceptionHandler...etc many more

From netbeans debugging i got info that (when all lines set breakpoint)
I got

Almost 884 lines debug output.
& 22 java files use like,, & which is source.
Question is:-
1. For simple class which use is also simple...really needs so much variables setting which shown in eclipse debugging activity in variables.
2. For more deep debugging should i put more breakpoints in java's .java files all lines? Some files contain more than 2000 lines. What is a best practice for put breakpoints?

It sounds like you are not just debugging your simple Class, but java itself!

Why would you want to do that?

Thanks William P O'Sullivan,

...but java itself!
Why would you want to do that?

because curiosity, interest...
i am not trying to solve java's bug...but want to see how particular code behave when we called it by directly or indirectly.
I agree. Here's the link:
