IBM WebShere - really annoying navigation problem!

Hi, I'm using IBM Websphere and cant navigate into (and outof) files easily.
I'm trying to drill into the java code to see what calls what, i.e. Class A calls Class B which Calls class C).

In eclipse you can hover over a method and do Ctrl-B (how do you do this in Websphere??). Also when I'm in class C and want to "go back" to it's caller, the BACK (and FORWARD) buttons in the navigator are grayed out!!! In eclipse you can do this I know. Isn't WebSphere built on Eclipse?

So the only way i can go back is to click on the file in the top tab and manually search for the call (REALLY ANNOYING and very counter-productive). any help/sanity greatly appreciated.
thanks, Ro.

Are you asking a question about the debugger in WSAD?

I'm a little lost too, WebSphere is built on Eclipse so anything you can do in Eclipse you should be able to do in WebSphere.

I had the same question before and it's not a problem at all. I use WSAD 5.1.2 and there is a "Navigate" menu/tools bar to do forward/backward , or keyboard shortcuts:
ALT+Arrow_left/Alt+Arrow_right.

Try them in your IDE.

Nah, didnt seem to work. The app i'm using is actually called "Websphere
studio site developer" but looks exactly like eclipse. It's built on eclipse. couldnt find the navigation buttons :-( and ALT arrows didnt work :-(
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
