Chapter 10: Servlet Debugging Techniques

 < Free Open Study > 


In this chapter we'll look at how to get hold of information that tells us what's going on inside the servlet container at run time. We'll cover three different techniques: using filters, using event listeners, and finally using the Java Platform Debugger Architecture (JPDA), which although not part of the Servlet API is useful and interesting nonetheless.

Specifically, we'll cover:

  • Some of the problems associated with servlet development that make debugging important

  • Using servlet filters and event listeners as non-invasive plug-in components to debug any web application

  • The Java Platform Debugger Architecture.

  • Visualizing our debugger results

  • Using the J2SE 1.4 Logging API to create a flexible debugging architecture

  • The prospect of a novel runtime reverse-engineering tool for UML

We won't go over old ground in this chapter so the coverage of filters and event listeners will be kept relevant to the task at hand.
