I am attempting to debug a Java application in intellij and am unable to reference 'this', so it is very difficult to debug because I have absolutely no contextual information. While I am able to set breakpoints and it appears execution does stop there, I cannot see any of those values.

My environment is openjdk15, Intellij CE 2021.3 (custom build, but stock build of 2020.2 was still problematic). I am running my Java application from the cmdline using java -jar and then attaching Intellij remotely on port 5005 which works on other platforms.

Has anyone else encountered any such issues?

Debugging is essential to develop.
