Chronon release 1.2

Posted by Prashant Deva on May 20, 2011

It has barely been a week since we released update 1.1.1 and we are back again with another update full of more goodies.

Support for Reflection in the recorder

The Chronon recorder will now recognize updates to the fields of your object done using the Java Reflection APIs.
This is especially useful if you use ORM frameworks like Hibernate which use reflection to set the fields of the Java objects. No longer will you see ‘null’ in those fields, but the actual values.

‘Copy Value’ for variables in the Debugger

If the value of a variable has a string that is too large to fit in the eclipse view, you can right-click and select ‘Copy Value’ to copy a fully formatted version of the string to clipboard.
This functionality is supported for all views that show the value of a variable, ie theLocals view, Variable History view and Current Line view.

And of course, lots more bugfixes in the recorder and debugger. If you were running into deadlocks while recording before, you shouldnt anymore.

So go ahead and update your Chronon installation!
