LiveRecorder for Java
Debugging Java streamlined

Ship apps faster with fewer bugs

LiveRecorder is the leading enterprise-class Software Failure Replay platform available for debugging Java applications (running on Linux) in development.

▪️ resolve defects faster
▪️ accelerate software delivery
▪️ realize productivity savings

Software Failure Replay

Record, Replay & Resolve application failures

Debugging application failures - whether in development or test - takes time and slows down deployment, innovation and delivery.

By recording your program's execution as it fails you can:

▪️ Capture application defects ‘in the act’
▪️ Replay the recording and analyze execution history to get instant visibility into what your program did & why
▪️ Rewind through the program execution to rapidly identify the root cause of any bug

Why choose LiveRecorder for Java development?

Quickly understand and fix errors

▪️ Get answers not alerts - recordings provide complete failure insight data for developers to rapidly diagnose the root cause of errors with 100% certainty

▪️ Capture intermittent failures - makes intermittent failures 100% reproducible and delivers root cause data

▪️ Save time and effort - no need to reproduce the bug or recreate the environment

▪️ Shift-left testing - shareable recordings that enable collaborative error resolution across development, QA and staging

▪️ Code-level observability - replay and analyze application execution history to understand unintended code behavior

▪️ Enhanced understandability - learn and understand code bases you didn’t write

Time Travel Debugging

Time travel through your application

Simply rewind and replay a recording artifact.

Travel backward in time (and forward again) to inspect the program state. LiveRecorder for Java adds additional controls to enable developers to reverse step out, reverse step into and reverse step over.

The full power of a modern debugger with variable and memory inspection, scripting, conditional breakpoints and watchpoints, all available in forward and reverse directions.

CI/CD - Test Automation

The solution for failing tests

Accelerate the debugging and resolution of test failures by integrating LiveRecorder into your CI system.

▪️ Automate the recording of failing tests
▪️ Systematic capture of intermittent failures
▪️ Shareable recordings - no more “I couldn’t reproduce that on my machine”
▪️ Debug the recording in your IDE
▪️ Integrates with all popular build automation tools

By reducing the time-to-fix of test failures, LiveRecorder enables teams to shrink their backlog of failing tests and reduce their subsequent technical debt.

LiveRecorder is the perfect tool for all of your test suite needs.


Bug resolution for teams

LiveRecorder enables effective management of failing tests, error detection and bug fixing across teams.

Fix bugs faster without having to search through logs, dive into APM or other tools created for other teams and other purposes. Skip past painstaking guesswork of traditional log-based debugging.
Tester - QA
Go one better than a test failure bug report. Attach a recording to your ticket containing all of the failure data needed for the developer to reproduce and fix the bug.
Boost developer productivity by providing your team with a solution that automates the capture of errors and their root causes, with 100% certainty.
