Breakpoint Suspend Policy

The Suspend Policy option is used to indicate what should be suspended when a breakpoint is hit.

There are two options for Java breakpoints:

  • Suspend Thread - suspends only the thread that encountered the breakpoint
  • Suspend VM - suspends the entire VM when the breakpoint is encountered

This option can be changed with the Breakpoint Properties..., or by right-clicking a breakpoint.

You can also change the default setting for the suspend policy for all newly created breakpoints.
