    Identify\'s test tool - AMAZING?

    I heard this was da bomb for debugging enterprise apps on .net. Not so good for j2ee though. Anyone used/heard/seen/anything about this?

    I think it starts in the 5-10k range for a copy, but they "really don't do single sales".
    Cheers,

    Yeah, that's it. It somehow gets really low level hooks in many levels of the OS without having to compile them in or anything. It's pretty amazing to me.

    I have used it and it IS amazing. We gave them code with a bug in it that took dev 2 weeks to track down. They found it in 15 minutes. The Flight Recorders are great for low-footprint deployment to user PC's. When there is an issue, you can pull back the "black box" and see exactly what went wrong and where. Their stuff does more than this but that is the gist.
    QA'in it since Bush 41

    Re: Identify\'s test tool - AMAZING?

    We have bought it and are in the process of implementing it. We're starting with our support group, with eventual plans to roll it out to QA.

    Buzz internally is that it's great. I know QA can't wait to get it, roll out can't happen fast enough as far as they are concerned.

    All sounds promising!

    Re: Identify\'s test tool - AMAZING?

    I talked to some folks who have used it and they were overall satisfied. They said they only let a few people touch it though as it can bring a system to a crawl/crash if you don't know what you're doing. The "people" went through extensive training on it and then still took a few weeks of working with it to get proficient.

    Betsy, I'm really interested in how it goes so if you can, please post a follow-up when the QA folks get to it. I know it will probably be a while, if ever, but if so....

    Thanks!

    PS I connected to a person in the UK that learned how to use it and is making over $300/hr as a consultant using it at other companies. (at the current 1x2 euro/dollar exchange rate)
