HaltManager provides a window showing all the breakpoints and halt messages of the system, and allows one to toggle them on/off with a simple click. Halt messages can also be toggled via source code rewriting. The deactivation/reactivation feature is available in all code browsers, not only in the HaltManager window.

2) Deactivating breakpoints and halts

Choosing this option will leave the source code intact, but rewrite the underlying bytecode to prevent the node from stopping the execution. Deactivated nodes are highlighted in blue to signal their condition.
Caution: If the method is later recompiled, the node will no longer be deactivated.
2.2) Deactivation by rewriting
This option is only available for halt messages, and allows to deactivate them by rewriting them in the source code to inactive variants (
