Exception Breakpoint Suspend on Subclass of this Exception

Select the Subclasses of this exception option to suspend execution when subclasses of the exception type are encountered.

For example, if an exception breakpoint for RuntimeException is configured to suspend on subclasses, it will also be triggered by a NullPointerException.

This option can be changed in the Breakpoints View detail pane, with the Breakpoint Properties..., or by right-clicking a breakpoint.
