Debugging Applications

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS CHAPTER:

  • Setting breakpoints in source code and using the Breakpoints panel
  • Using the Flash Debug Perspective in Flash Builder
  • Utilizing the Variables panel
  • Global error handling
  • Handling uncaught errors
  • Using Try...Catch statements
  • Stepping through source code

In this chapter you'll take a closer look at using Flash Builder to debug applications using the Flash Debug Perspective.

Flash Builder offers debugging capabilities that allow you to find bugs within your application. The Debug panel allows you to stop and start the mobile application to find problems, or to examine or substitute values for variables.

This chapter covers example code that intentionally introduces a bug from the outset. You then go through a series of tools and techniques to identify and fix the issue using the Debug Perspective in Flash Builder.
