Debugging in Eclipse (Java); can not overflow a variable at break to display the value


Im using Eclipse to code Java (for Android) and Im trying to debug the code as I normally do (i normally do C# though).

From what I can tell, debugging in Eclipse is really REALLY bad. I dont know if Im doing something wrong, but it seems to be just awful.

This is the code that is being run, I get some sort of exception and I want to see what the Exception is, by breaking in the "catch"-clause and viewing the variable "e":

    ConnectivityManager connectivityManager = (ConnectivityManager) this.getSystemService( Context.CONNECTIVITY_SERVICE );
    NetworkInfo activeNetInfo = connectivityManager.getActiveNetworkInfo();
    NetworkInfo mobNetInfo = connectivityManager.getNetworkInfo(ConnectivityManager.TYPE_MOBILE);
    NetworkInfo.State state = mobNetInfo.getState();
catch(Exception e)
    Log.v("MyAp", e.toString()); // I break on this line, and want to see what e is

the problem is that I cannot see "e" by holding my mouse over it (as I can in my beloved Visual Studio).

Now, I know that I can bring up the tab "Variables" which lists all variables accessible from when Im breaking, but thats sort of sucky.

Just so I know - Eclipse has no way of "hovering" over the variable you are interested in, as in Visual Studio?

EDIT 1: Thanks for the answers. However, still have the same problem =(

As far as I can tell, you have to be in Debug view in order to hover over objects and see their properties. At least that's how my copy of Eclipse 3.4 works.

Of course, you also need to be in Debug view to have the Step Into, Step Over, Continues, etc... buttons...
