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.

studio site developer" but looks exactly like eclipse. It's built on eclipse. couldnt find the navigation buttons :-( and ALT arrows didnt work :-(
