Eclipse Mars introduced the new Eclipse Automatic Error Reporting system (AERI), which lowered the hurdle to send error reports dramatically. Users will get into contact with this system when an error occurs in the IDE and a popup message requests to send this incident.
Thousands of reports are reaching Eclipse now each month. But what happens with these reports? How does an Eclipse committer use this information? Let’s have a look at the committer’s perspective and how these reports are helping Eclipse projects to identify where users have real errors. Learn about the committer’s workflow with AERI and see a bug get fixed live during the session.
