exception breakpoint. Execution can be suspended at locations where the exception is
uncaught, caught, or both.
Choose Add Java Exception Breakpoint from the
Breakpoints View or the workbench Run menu.
A dialog listing all of the available exceptions is presented (see the following figure).
Type the name of the exception you want to catch or select it from the list.
At the bottom of the page, use the checkboxes to specify how you want execution to suspend at locations where the exception is thrown.
