jBixbe, a stand-alone Java debugger, has announced the release of version 1.0 Final
. New features include the possibility to open a dynamic source code view directly for a method in sequence diagram and a text view to display the value of a string reference.
jBixbe debugs Java applications by showing their structure and functioning on the conceptual level of the Unified Modeling Language (UML)at which they are designed. jBixbe is designed to locate simple bugs along with weaknesses and insufficiencies in application design.
jBixbe also claims to show the "big picture" of an application so you can realize classes, objects, their relationships and interaction.
Different view levels support top-down debugging and simplify debugging of multi-threaded applications. The source code debugging has been fully integrated into the object-oriented visualization.
