With so much stress on Continuous Integration and Agile methodologies, shorter development cycles. Do you explain different approaches to debug? During unit testing? Integration testing? Performance testing etc.

DO you touch/talk about how to debug when working on a multiOS? Is this book specific to any vendor/tools? Sorry if you have already stated this before.

Thanks,
Santhosh

Hello Santhosh,

I'm not sure that the approaches to debugging vary very much depending upon when you do it, except insofaras it's always beneficial to do it as soon as you possibly can. The shorter the interval between a bug finding its way into the code in the first place and it being found, diagnosed and fixed, the better. This effect is one of the primary benefits of agile methodologies in general and approaches like continuous integration in particular.

I do discuss this effect, and why it helps to both improve the quality of the software you're debugging and the predictability of the development process, at some length in the book :-)

Regarding your question about vendors and tools - no, the book is not specific to any particular OS, language or toolchain.

Thanks for your response Paul. By approaches I was thinking in terms of difference when the whole code is on my box vs when application is integrated on glass.

But I looked thru the TOC of your book looks very informative and helpful. Hope to get hold of one sometime.

Good luck with your book.

Regards,
Santhosh
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
