Breakpoints not reachable if debugging @Transactional tests

Hi there,

I have the following problem:

I have a testsuite:

I have an implementation of the MyRepository interface (JdbcMyRepository) and this is configured in the app-test-context.xml:

If I put a breakpoint in the JdbcMyRepository, and start debugging the test1() method in MyTests, it does not break at the breakpoint! It looks like it could not come into the reflected class JdbcMyRepository through the interface MyRepository.

But... If I comment out @TransactionConfiguration(defaultRollback=false) and @Transactional in MyTests, then it works very well and I can debug my JdbcMyRepository (the debug is suspended at the breakpoint).

Can anybody explain that? Isn't it possible to debug if we use @Transactional?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Bart,

I have never had any issues with this. Try a project clean in eclipse. Also try to clear all your break points rebuild the project then try again. Another work around you can try is set the breakpoint in your test class and then step into to see if you can get in your repository implementation class. Once again I don't have this issue so I am not sure what the problem is.
