Writing good code is the most important task of software development and this does not complete without debugging and fixing bugs. The Eclipse Java IDE provides many debugging tools and views for users to debug effectively and efficiently. Eclipse users spend a lot of time in debugging code and every new debugging feature in Eclipse helps the users to be productive in fixing bugs. Debugging in Eclipse Platform and JDT is continuously evolving to provide tooling which can help users debug complex scenarios and spend less time in routine tasks.
I will talk about some exciting new features coming up in Photon (4.8) like :
• Provision of Launch Configuration templates under Friend of Eclipse Enhancement Program (FEEP)
