It was a while ago I created this introductory screencast (it used a modified version of 0.5.1 (perhaps it can be considered as a never-released first alpha of 0.5.2), so it is not totally correct but it helps a lot to understand how this can be used.
If not, please don’t hesitate to inform us how to correct it.
Release version 0.6.0 of Debug Visualisation viewRelease version 0.6.0 of Debug Visualisation view
After many hours of work we finally managed to release a new version of the Debug Visualisation project! This release is a complete rewrite of the previous version (0.5.X), and now it is built upon the JFace API and other standard eclipse technologies instead of different custom hackings. We expect improved stability and maintainability from the new techniques, which means that we can implement more advanced features in the plugin.
Currently, the new version does not include all functionality what the old version did, but we’re sure we will manage to reach it soon. For more information about this release, please refer to the release announcement.
Debug Visualisation for Eclipse… Who knows what is it good for. Maybe a quick detection of some misplaced references. Maybe more.
The project started as a home assignment for an Eclipse course at the university, but we were interested in it, so we continued the development. Our goal was to support the debugging process by helping the detection (or exploration) of the state space of the program.
We are not calling our software a 1.0 release, as we don’t think it can help in a lot of cases. But we believe it is worth to invest time to increase its usefulness. Maybe in the end something good will come out from it.
This page is started for reporting our progress, share ideas. We would be glad to hear your opinions about the project. Your idea may help – we are not capable of solving the problem in general, we need potential use cases. We need testing.
So to help the communication a blog is born. Please if you test our project, give us feedback: what do you like, what are the worst points. Do you have an idea to share with us? We are glad to hear it. Maybe we will implement it, if we are interested enough. Or if you implement it, we are glad to include it. So let’s rock.
