A Method and System for Utilizing Heat Map to Resolve Software Migration Incompatibility

Software products evolve over time with release of new versions. Users of software products create and use applications that functions well with a particular version of a software product. When a user wishes to migrate to a new version of a software product, the user needs to make sure that one or more applications continue to function properly with a new version of the software product. Therefore, a method and system is required for enabling a user to identify impacts that migration of a software product to another version has on one or more applications corresponding to the software product.

Disclosed is a method and system that utilizes a heat map to resolve software migration incompatibility.

Consider a scenario, wherein version 1 of a software product is installed by a user. The user may have developed one or more applications which work with the software product. As the user interacts with the software product, the system monitors and records such interactions. For example, information pertaining to code paths, configuration and settings are recorded and dynamically shared with a software developer at regular intervals. In an instance, the system tags significant code paths in the software product for monitoring the code paths.

The information is utilized by the software developer to get knowledge regarding such as, but not limited to, configuration of the software pro...
