Show logical structure in Eclipse Debug

Here’s a neat trick that’s going to make Java debugging in Eclipse a little bit easier. The trick, or actually the feature, is called show logical structure and it’s available in the debug perspective’s Variables view. When the feature is turned on, the variables list shows a nicer structure for lists and maps and makes checking their content a lot easier. The feature can be turned on and off from the variable header. The picture below shows the exact spot.
