If you have been having trouble with the debugger in eclipse taking forever to start, well I finally figured out what the cause of the problem was. Â BREAKPOINTS! Â I use so many breakpoint, but I usually just unchecked them when I didn’t need to use them right then and there, but might need to in the future. Â I have also been known to use the breakpoints kind of like bookmarks to certain points in code. Â I did all this thinking that if the breakpoints were unchecked, it wouldn’t even be utilized. Â Boy was I wrong. Â Long story short… remove your breakpoints, active or not.
