Abstract

The most common way of application debugging is reading the log output generated either on a console or in a file. Exception stack trace is often printed out when an exception is thrown out. Stack trace of exceptions in enterprise applications is quite long. It often ranges between tens of line to hundred of lines. Not all the lines of stack trace are important to their readers at the first glance. On the contrary, the massive amount of stack trace often prevents a reader from pinpointing the problem quickly. Therefore the stack trace is useful on one hand and disruptive on the other hand. This article discuss an improved method of dynamically displaying stack trace for viewing application exception log/trace output.
