by Nataraju Neeluru | June 2010 | Java

In this article by Nataraju Neeluru, we will learn how to debug a Java program using a simple command-line debugging tool called JDB. JDB is one of the several debuggers available for debugging Java programs. It comes as part of the Sun's JDK. JDB is used by a lot of people for debugging purposes, for the main reason that it is very simple to use, lightweight and being a command-line tool, is very fast. Those who are familiar with debugging C programs with gdb, will be more inclined to use JDB for debugging Java programs.

We will cover most of the commonly used and needed JDB commands for debugging Java programs. Nothing much is assumed to read this article, other than some familiarity with Java programming and general concepts of debugging like breakpoint, stepping through the code, examining variables, etc. Beginners may learn quite a few things here, and experts may revise their knowledge.
