debugging : Java Glossary


Dedugging means finding and fixing the flaws in computer programs. It is fun and challenging. I suspect some programmers are deliberately sloppy so they will have more fun in the debugging stage, however, the best way to debug a program is to write it so carefully that no bugs creep in the first place.

If you have a lot of bugs, that is a good sign there will be many more you have not found.


If you want more effective programmers, you will discover that they should not waste their time debugging, they should not introduce the bugs to start with.

Testing shows the presence, not the absence of bugs.
