I've read most of the posts here in this forum... I just would like to know whether the role of IDEs is discussed in the greatest book "Art of Java Web Development"? But I found some portion of the TOC discuss about the debugging with IDEs... Here is what I have extracted from the TOC of the book...


16.3 Debugging with IDEs 493
-Debugging with NetBeans 493
-Debugging with JBuilder 498
-Differences between debuggers 502

Hi Ko Ko,
I guess it maybe either JBuilder or NetBean, as Mr. Neal has said that he prefer using JBuilder in this thread:
https://coderanch.com/t/47508/Struts/IDE-Anyone-Art-Java-Web
Since JBuilder need a license, thus, in the book, he may focus on some freeware like NetBean.
I also wish Mr. Neal can clarify this, although I will use WSAD as my IDE.
Nick.

I do cover debugging in 3 ways:
  • Using just the SDK (sometimes it is the only thing available)
  • Using JBuilder (which I prefer)
  • Using NetBeans, because I wanted to use an open source IDE

  • I didn't cover WSAD or Eclipse because of space considerations. However, some of the techniques I cover for JBuilder and NetBeans also works in these other environments. Have you tried to evaluate complex expressions in using the debugger? You may be amazed at how much information the debugger can tell you.

    I have ever used JBuilder's debugger... That's tremendous! I was surprised to see the result coming up...
    But I've never tried to use that feature in WSAD, even though I sometimes use WASD for other purpose and learning purpose.... I'm not that sure that WSAD's debugger is comparable to JBuilder's one...
