Exception breakpoint and Field Watchpoint are great timesavers when troubleshooting bugs that result in exception. No more staring at the code; sprinkling line breakpoints everywhere. Simply set up the exception breakpoint, reproduce the exception according to the bug description. Volia, Intellij suspends the program when it hits the exception and now it is easy to go through the stack and pinpoint what the problem is.
