situation when going to source through Variables would help
When debugging NetBeans sources I often find myself in a situation where a for-cycle is looped over lookup instances of an interface, while I would need to see the sources of the particular instance. The trouble here is that there is no way to jump straight to the source of a particular instance, because it is not directly referenced from the debugged source, so nothing like the usual action Ctrl-click on type name is available. However, when debugging, the current instance is displayed in Variables window. Intuitively I right-clicked the type in question in Variables window hoping to find "Go to Source" action but this is not implemented. See attachment for a situation like I have just described. I believe it would be quite practical to enable "Go to Source" from Variables right-click menu because for-cycling through concrete instances only by means of their common supertype/interface only is a common pattern.
