The debugging benchmark

The two Marks of Barton and Myers tweeted out a YouTube video which is really worth watching:

What it shows is some of the new features which the debugger in the Flash development environment, which is built onto Eclipse, will offer.

The headlines are being able to step backwards as well as forwards through code and also to right click on a variable to see why it is set the way it is (ie a live stack trace) and how we got to the current line of code.

In contract with SSJS in XPages we get to use print statements. I'm sure this is being looked at to improve, but Adobe has certainly set the benchmark in the IDE space.
