Evaluating expressions in JDT Debugger

You can use the Display View to type in an expression and evaluate it in the context of the current stack frame. (The name Display is not great - see bug 342144).

- Use content assist to type expressions

- Select the expression and use Ctrl+Shift+I (Inspect) to show the result in a pop-up. You can also invoke the Inspect command from the context menu.

- Press Ctrl+Shift+I again to persist the result in the Expressions view.
