This is just an infomercial... no 'news' here.
if you think any of the points in that post are not valid why not make a technical argument instead of trashing it just because our software is commercial.
Sure. The answer provided in the article is incorrect. The traditional debugger works great. I used it today. So did my coworker. So did several people in my division, and several thousand around the world. So to answer the question, "is it still relevant in 2011?" is simply: absolutely, undoubtedly, without question, yes. I know this isn't the way you want us to see it, but to the overwhelming majority, it is the truth. Sometimes you just need something simple and it's "good enough" to get the job done.
Second, the real reason for my post, is that there is Chronon spam all over DZone. We get it, you guys invented something new. Congrats. I don't care if independent reviewers find your tools useful, but as I suspected, Chronon is likely behind a majority of the spam. DZone is not the forum for that. You should pay for advertisements rather than game the system. That's probably not convenient for a startup, but that's ethical business practices, hence my downvote and my comment.
Chronon being closed source makes no bearing on my opinion. There are plenty of annoying open source devs.
just because people use it doesnt mean its the right or wrong approach to the problem.
you use the traditional debugger cause there is no other alternative.
though i bet you used log files for that server that crashed after running for 4 weeks.
This is the same as saying noone should have invented the iphone or the touch interface cause traditional phones work so well.
We have put forward real technical reasons why our approach is better.
If you feel its not why not make real technical arguments yourself rather than just calling our post spam.
as usual, your post lacks any technical merit or argument other than the fact you dont like us just cause...
Sorry, I thought I was clear. I don't like two things:
* The tone of the article suggests all solutions but Chronon are irrelevant. This isn't true.
* This isn't an independent review of Chronon, but the description or title don't mention this. You have to read to the bottom of the article, and it's implied strongly, but that should be stated outright before the user opens the article. As such, this is commercial spam because it's unsolicited.
I never said I didn't like Chronon debugger. Go back and read what I wrote.
if you know of great alternative why not post about them.
We know of our alternative to the debugger and we have posted them.
How javalobby formats or posts their items is not under our control.
Our aim with the post was to give clear, technical arguments for why we think our approach is better.
This is no different than any post on javalobby or dzone which gives technical comparison between 2 products/algorithms/approaches.
Your whole tone throughout seems you see this an 'infomercial' just because we are talking about our product.
It would have been had we not given solid technical arguments, but that is not the case here.
The post has open commenting and anyone is open to challenging the technical details put through or suggest better alternatives.
Again, I have no opinion of Chronon Debugger. You invented something neat. Congrats. You can stop throwing straw man arguments my way.
I've been only speaking on the merits of your post to DZone. A better title would have been, "Prashant Deva, CTO of Chronon, asks "Is the traditional debugger relevant in 2011?""
That title states to the user clear intention about who wrote the article without them having to read to the bottom of the article. The dzone reader can decide at that point in time whether or not he wishes to read the article knowing full well that it is likely to be slanted in favor of Chronon. This is called full disclosure. It's *honest*, _ethical_, journalism. That's all we're asking for. Is Chronon a company we can trust?
As a potential user, I'm a little aggravated at this point. It really wouldn't have taken much to admit the title or description was slightly biased.
Maybe you havent looked around, but dzone and javalobby are an aggregation of blog posts.
What javalobby and dzone provide is a way to surface those blog posts and invite discussions on them.
I dont see too many blog posts which start off with the credentials of the author.
If you are looking for independent, third party, peer reviewed journal articles you are in the wrong place.
Specifying my nature of involvement with Chronon wouldnt add to anything to the technical content of the blog post.
If you think the blog post is biased or wrong argue that on technical terms not on the basis of my involvement with Chronon.
So far you havent come up with any.
Looks like Chronon Systems is company we should all stay away from!
as usual a comment just based on the like/dislike factor lacking any technical merit
a comment from a egomaniac unfamiliar with the definition of a "Straw Man Argument" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straw_man
i think that applies to you here more than me since you continue posting without any technical argument to back up your position.
you don't cease to amaze me
neither do you
