New Exception Hunter from Red Gate finds unhandled exceptions during development
CAMBRIDGE, U.K., December 10, 2007 – A new tool called Exception Hunter from Red Gate could go a long way in eliminating application crashes caused by unhandled exceptions that currently plague application developers and end-users.
Exception Hunter is an intelligent analysis engine that accurately predicts the possible set of exceptions that can be thrown by a method. It enables developers to deal with exceptions during the development phase rather than the QA phase of a development lifecycle.
"Until now, developers have had to wait until an error happened to find out which method throws which exceptions," says Bart Read, Red Gate's lead developer for Exception Hunter. "Exceptions are often ignored and the errors mount, leading to strange application behavior and crashes. Exception Hunter finds and reports exceptions early in the development process, so they don't cause downstream problems for developers and end-users."
Like all Red Gate tools, Exception Hunter is simple to use:
- Choose the assembly to analyze.
- Drill down to the method level.
- Review the list of different types of exceptions that your methods can throw.
- Write an exception handler where needed.
"It's all about an ounce of prevention, rather than the frustrating cure of patching after application development," says Read. "Exception Hunter should become an essential tool for any .NET developer who wants to produce better-quality code."
Exception Hunter starts at $295 for a single user, with discounts available for multiple-user licenses. A demo, walkthrough, and fully functional, 14-day trial download of Exception Hunter can be found at www.red-gate.com.
