    Default While Loop Confounds JDK's Command Line Debugger (jdb)

    My code includes this line:

    while(input.hasNext())
    {
       int variable = input.nextInt();
       ...
    }

    When I step through the code, jdb stops at the beginning of the while loop and I can't find a way to get past it.

    How does one debug code requiring a user input with the command line debugger?

    Use remote debugging with 2 consoles - one for the app and another for the jdb. The following link might be of some use for how to do this via a command line app:

    I am using the debugger provided by the Java Development Kit.
    It opens upon typing jdb in the command line.
