Title: CONDITIONAL DEBUGGING OF SERVER-SIDE PRODUCTION CODE
Abstract:
Systems and methods for processing breakpoints on a remotely located server computer are presented. In one embodiment, a breakpoint is set in a target program. This includes setting the breakpoint in a manner that does not block execution of the target program upon the breakpoint triggering. Additionally, executable instructions are included at the location in the target program of the breakpoint to generate a snapshot of debugger information regarding the target program. The snapshot information is then provided to a programmer's debugger for debugging purposes. Further, in setting the breakpoint, the breakpoint is conditioned by the programmer to trigger only upon the satisfaction of a set of conditional criteria corresponding to a logical execution context.
