Visual debugging of object-oriented systems by S. P Fenwick( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "A visual debugging environment provides a visual representation of the run-time state of a program. Appropriate use of visual techniques makes the information presented easier for the user to understand. Visual debugging is particularly suited to object-oriented systems because their structures are so amenable to visual representation. The concepts of visual debugging and visual programming are summarised. Object-oriented programming concepts are introduced. Snart is described as an example of an object-oriented language. Techniques for generating graphical views of run-time object-oriented systems are discussed. Two views of the system are investigated. A single-object view provides detailed information about a single object. A multi-object view provides information about the relationships between objects. Specialised views of collection classes are also investigated. Application of these techniques has led to the development of Cerno, an environment for debugging object- oriented systems. Cerno is implemented in Prolog and allows users to view Snart programs during execution. The prototype is used to evaluate the usefulness of the ideas discussed. Possible directions for future research into visual debugging are discussed."
