Setting Breakpoints

Top Previous Next

You can set breakpoints on any line of a stored PL/SQL object. When a statement continues over multiple lines, Oracle automatically moves the breakpoint to the beginning of the statement.

Program execution will pause when a breakpoint is reached. You can then use the Trace Out or Run buttons to continue until the program flow reaches the next breakpoint or the end of program, or you can step through single statements.

The following breakpoint operations are available from the menu bar and the toolbar, or by right-clicking in the Breakpoints window:


Add Breakpoint

Adds a new breakpoint on the line.


Toggle Breakpoint

Toggles breakpoint on the current line.


Remove Breakpoint

Removes breakpoint from the current line.
