Sun One Debuggin' Fun
I’m using Sun One Studio 4, update 1, Community edition. Does anybody know why, whenever I try to debug, this #$%@ app locks up tight? Anybody experience this? It happens at work (Win 2K), at home (Win XP) & on my laptop (Win 2K). It happens even if it’s just a ‘hello world’ program. Any ideas? Thanks.
I hate to be unhelpful, but this is probably caused by the fact that the Sun One IDE is based on the NetBeans/Forte codebase, which I've seen fatally fail in one way or another dozens of times since I first used an IDE in that lineage back in '99. (Forget for now that it's a bloated, slow, poorly-conceived environment that tries to do just about everything but gets nothing right.)
The problem is that "Sun One" is a complete IDE (even comes with the bugs included as we can see :-), but Eclipse and JEdit still need plugins that even if available may not work as well as a complete IDE out-of-the-box.
Sun ONE == Netbeans, so if you're having troubles with it, it might be worth a try heading over to www.netbeans.org and seeing if the latest release there fixes your problems.
