The computing world has changed from a cen- tral computing environment to a distributed com- puting environment. When the computing platform of the user and the computing platform of the sot?- ware author are geographical and electronically separated, capturing the program data and environ- ment that causes the sohware to fail is difficult. Before sofiware can be modified to handle this unexpected data or environment that causes the software to mal- function, that data and environment must be cap- tured and made available to software author.
