Most talkative feature of Visual Studio 2010 is nothing but the IntelliTrace
feature, which provides a new way of debugging. This is major enhancement in
Visual Studio 2010, which helps in two ways, the developer to debug faster, the
tester to record the bug and send it to the developers to figure out the exact
line of code. Various benefits of this feature are explained in detail as below.
Mainly it helps the developers as well as testers to maintain a good
relationship and also to increase their productivity by reducing the time to
find and fix the issues. Tester can record their steps while testing and send
the bug to the developers. Developers can go to the exact line of code using the
Intellitrace and fix the issue. Testers no need to go back from steps for
testing, they can run the recorded testing and continue from the step where they
found the code. It really increases the productivity.
We can easily rewind the history of the bug which helps a lot to the developers
to fix the issue quickly. Without IntelliTrace you would have to restart the
entire application, but now it's not at all required. Simply you can click the
IntelliTrace link and it will go to the line where the exception has occurred.
You can find all the breakpoint event in the IntelliTrace window.
This is the main problem for developers, because in testing machine any
exception can occur which is always be non reproducible by the developers
mostly. IntelliTrace provides a good solution for this issue and helps the
developers as well as testers, globally makes the entire product or project to
be delivered soon. Previous debugger provides only a little amount of
information about the exception occurred, but this IntelliTrace provides the
entire information about the problem occurred, and we can rewind the history n
number of times to reproduce the issue, So that we can easily fix the issue
without any confusion.
In general IntelliTrace provides three capabilities
Make Coding and Debugging faster by utilizing this IntelliTrace feature.
