Is initial state of a Java stack frame stored somewhere

In My IDE (Eclipse), debugger has an option "Drop to Frame" for each method in the method stack, which when clicked resets the stack to the initial state of the selected method.

How is the operation achieved?

Is this an potion from JDB or IDE would have stored the initial state of all method stack frames?

How could have static variables for other classes got reset?
