Eclipse debugger tips – the “Display” view

Window -> Show View -> Display.

Type some code into this view, highlight it and then press the “J” button in the top right of the frame.  This will execute the code and return the results.

I’ve been using Eclipse for over three years and I only found about this feature the other day.  Oh well, we live and learn.
