Changing the priority to P1 because adding breakpoint is not possible on windows.
Comment 3 Daniel Prusa 2009-02-09 15:11:29 UTC
This is not reproducible for me with basic ide build, the problem could be related to some other debugger modules. I
will look at it.
Comment 4 Martin Entlicher 2009-02-09 19:27:37 UTC
Happens since JDK 6u12 on all platforms.
It's a severe regression of debugger UI. The cause is the same as in issue #157300 and can be fixed in the same way - by
not overriding isValid() method of UI components.

Due to a clash of isValid() method with Controller interface, the fix is not so simple as in issue #157300.

Nearly all debuggers are affected - JPDA, BPEL, CND, PHP, Ruby, JSP and Javascript.

Comment 6 jessholle 2009-02-10 12:15:05 UTC
This is marked as target milestone 7.0M2?!?

This must be fixed as soon as possible in 6.5, not just 7.0 as this is causing great developer frustration in 6.5.
Comment 7 Martin Entlicher 2009-02-10 14:20:16 UTC
This is a defect.
Comment 8 Martin Entlicher 2009-02-10 14:22:24 UTC
jessholle, target milestone is 7.0M2, because we're fixing every issue in current trunk first.
After the fix is done and properly tested, it can be decided to backport it to an older release.
Comment 9 Martin Entlicher 2009-02-10 15:01:56 UTC
Fixed in changeset:   116827:0d1978f24dd0

Please test if all components are displayed right and work correctly. All panels in Attach and New Breakpoint dialog
were changed.
Comment 10 jessholle 2009-02-10 21:18:16 UTC
I've also noticed lately that my breakpoints don't show up in the breakpoints window -- even after re-installing
NetBeans 6.5.

I've moved back to Java 6 Update 11 from Update 12, so the Attach Debugger dialog works again, but I'm wondering if
there's not a related bug with the breakpoints window that also exists with Update 11.

Is the breakpoints window issue a known issue?
Comment 11 Jaromir Uhrik 2009-02-11 08:08:41 UTC
jessholle, there is issue #157300 related to "missing breakpoints checkboxes" in breakpoints window. But breakpoint
nodes are there as I know and also this issue is available since JDK6 Update12.

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200902180201* on (upload may still be in progress)
Log: #158192 - Components for Attach panel must not implement Controller interface, due to a clash of isValid() method. All attach panels are rewritten to provide a separate implementation of Controller interface. Breakpoint panels also should not implement the Controller interface. But as a simple fix, we do not call isValid() method for controllers that extends JComponent. Therefore not overriding isValid() is enough if panels should be always valid.
