ItemDescription

Java

Skip class loadersSelect this check box to suppress stepping into class loaders while debugging.
Skip simple gettersSelect this check box to suppress stepping into simple getter methods (i.e., methods designed just to return the necessary value) while debugging.
Do not step into the classesSelect this check box to suppress stepping into the specified classes while debugging. The list of classes contains entries of two types:
  • Fully qualified class names.
  • Regular expressions (either exact matches or patterns that begin or end with "*", for example, java.*).

By default, the list contains some standard Java SDK class patterns so that you do not have to waste your time stepping into Java class libraries. Use the check boxes in the list to disable/enable particular patterns temporarily.

Use the /help/img/idea/2017.2/add_class.png, /help/img/idea/2017.2/add_class_pattern.png, and /help/img/idea/2017.2/delete.png buttons to manage the list.
