Debugging with the Eclipse Platform
Find out how to use the built-in debugging features in the Eclipse Platform for debugging software projects. Debugging is something programmers can't avoid. There are many ways to go about it, but it essentially comes down to finding the code responsible for a bug. For example, one of the most common errors in Linux applications is known as a segmentation fault. This occurs when a program attempts to access memory not allocated to it and terminates with a segmentation violation. To fix this kind of error, you need to find the line of code that triggers the behavior. Once the line of code in question has been found, it is also useful to know the context in which the error occurs, and the associated values, variables, and methods. The use of a debugger makes finding this information quite simple.
