When I debug I can't see values of local variables, There is a message

Build\Compiling\Additional Compiler Options I entered -g. What do I do
wrong? How to make debugger see local variables?

If you look just above the "Additional Compiler Options" box in the "Project
Propeties" dialog, "Build/Compiling" option, you will note two checkboxes. The
first is labeled "Generate Debugging Info". The box labeled "Additional
Compiler Options" is for *additional* options, that means in addition to the
two specified by the checkboxes.

Personally, I always check both. Under Netbeans I never have a reason to run
without "-g" nor to use deprecated APIs. I almost never use the additional
options. I do have one long-running server process on which I specify
"-server", and I am experimenting in that project with various "-XX"
garbage-collection options.
