How to view value of a JSP variable in wsad debug mode

I set a breakpoint in a jsp in wsad to view the value of a variable
<%String searchForm = settings.getCMAsJSPs (topPackage, “search”);%>

When i start the server on debug mode, i can step into the code, but i cannot find the value of the variable ‘searchForm’ in the variables tab.

Could someone tell me how i could do this?
