Description Jesse Glick 2011-08-12 15:07:59 UTC
The fix of bug #200698 means you can conveniently associate sources with a binary root in some circumstances in the UI, notably Go to Declaration or other cases where a *.class disassembly is opened in the editor. But if your first encounter with the lack of sources for a JAR is stepping into one of its methods in the debugger, you might not find this.

When the debugger is asked to step into a method for which no sources are currently available, it ought to call SourceJavadocAttacher in case the user can supply sources.

Thnaks, I'll look at it.
