Hi,

I used to be able to step into the Java API source using Eclipse on a Mac. Now I can't.



Can someone help me out and tell me how to edit my Source Path Lookup to include Java 5 SE API again?

Thanks.

Kaydell

Check and see if you installed your JVM with the source option set on. If you did, your JVM directory tree should include a source subdirectory. If it's there, that's what you want to tell Eclipse to look in when it wants source for debugging that descends into the JRE.

Because of intellectual property limitations, most JVMs don't include source for ALL of the JRE classes, however. Most of the really important ones are there, though.
