Start using the New SSJS Debugger in Designer 9

My first show is on Notes in 9 check it out.

SSJS Debugger Demo in Notes in 9

Check out my two post last year regarding a SSJS Debugger  –> Link

Conditional breakpoints was one of the suggestions that was voted up as a function in the debugger and we get that. I don’t know if someone at IBM did read this and the feature is there because of the post but I like to think so 😉


If you have any great tip regarding debugging in Designer 9 please feel free to comment.

This is the result of the debugger poll

I have a little poll Link about what the developer community want from a future debugger I had 62 people responding to the poll, Not a huge amount but anyway enough to see the direction. A future debugger of XPages needs SSJS debugging, java and client side debugging is not necessary. 

It was a close run between new debugging features that I listed  between conditional breakpoints and

backwards debugging and the backwards debugging won. It would be great to have both these functions in a future debugger. How could a backwards debugger work in Domino, well I think that it could work like this. When you start debugging every change to variables is logged the only variables that can be traced is your own variables. no objects. Then when you start to trace backwards these changes is shown in the debugger like playing a movie backwards.

Looking forward to the day when we get a debugger.
