The only complete, pragmatic guide to the advanced CLR debugging techniques developers need to find and fix the toughest .NET software bugs. • •By Mario Hewardt, co-author of the best-selling, widely-praised Advanced Windows Debugging.. •Shows how to use .NET's powerful native CLR debugging tools to track down challenging bugs far more quickly. •Includes the best coverage of .NET memory debugging available anywhere. •Illuminates the debugging implications of the latest .NET 4.0 runtime changes. Advanced .NET Debugging is the definitive guide to tracking down the most complex and challenging bugs in today's .NET application code. Authored by Mario Hewardt, co-author of the widely-praised Advanced Windows Debugging this is the only book to focus entirely on .NET's immensely powerful native debuggers: the Debugging Tools for Windows, including WinDBG and SoS. Using this book, experienced .NET programmers will be able to analyze problematic code and identify the root causes of problems far more quickly than they ever could with visual tools. Hewardt begins by introducing the essential concepts developers must master in order to debug code with the native debuggers, including the tools available, the core fundamentals of the .NET CLR runtime, and essential debugging tasks. Next, he turns to sophisticated debugging techniques, teaching through real-world examples that demonstrate a broad spectrum of common C# programming errors. Hewardt thoroughly covers postmortem debugging without access to the physical machine; PowerDBG and other .NET debugging 'power tools'; and, finally, the debugging implications of the brandnew .NET CLR 4.0.
Quickly master all the skills you need to build your own compilers and interpreters in C++ Whether you are a professional programmer who needs to write a compiler at work or a personal programmer who wants to write an interpreter for a language of your own invention, this book quickly gets you up and running with all the knowledge and skills you need to do it right. It cuts right to the chase with a series of skill-building exercises ranging in complexity from the basics of reading a program to advanced object-oriented techniques for building a compiler in C++. Here's how it works: Every chapter contains anywhere from one to three working utility programs that provide a firsthand demonstration of concepts discussed, and each chapter builds upon the preceding ones. You begin by learning how to read a program and produce a listing, deconstruct a program into tokens (scanning), and how to analyze it based on its syntax (parsing). From there, Ron Mak shows you step by step how to build an actual working interpreter and an interactive debugger. Once you've mastered those skills, you're ready to apply them to building a compiler that runs on virtually any desktop computer.

Annotation Oracle JRockit is one of the industry_s highest performing Java Virtual Machines. Java developers are always on the lookout for better ways to analyze application behavior and gain performance. As we all know, this is not as easy as it looks. Welcome to JRockit: The Definitive Guide. This book helps you gain in-depth knowledge of Java from the JVM_s point of view. We will explain how to write code that works well with the JVM to gain performance and scalability. Starting with the inner workings of the JRockit JVM and finishing with a thorough walkthrough of the tools in the JRockit Mission Control suite, this book is for anyone who wants to know more about how the JVM executes your Java application and how to profile for better performance. What you will learn from this book : Get to grips with the fundamental building blocks of a JVM: the code generator, the garbage collector, and the implementation of threads and synchronization. Learn the design philosophy behind the JRockit JVM in these areas. Become a better Java programmer through enhanced understanding of the Java runtime. Learn how program execution works in an adaptive environment. Create relevant benchmarks and accurately measure the performance of your Java application. Learn the most important command-line flags that control JRockit subsystems and their use for performance tuning. Get to know what JRockit Mission Control is, how to set it up, and how to trouble-shoot it. Use the JRockit Management Console to monitor and manage a running JRockit instance. Profile your JRockit JVM and Java application with near zero overhead using the JRockit Runtime Analyzer and the JRockit Flight Recorder. Detect and resolve Java memory leaks using the JRockit Memory Leak Detector tool. Learn how JRockit Virtual Edition works and why it outperforms other Java solutions in traditional virtualized environments. Approach Filled with careful step-by-step instructions and plenty of screenshots, this tutorial shows you JRockit and how to get the most from it. All key concepts in the JRockit JVM, such as code generation, memory management and other internals are introduced. Performance aspects of Java are discussed in detail. A complete guide to use the tools in the JRockit Mission Control suite is also included, and much more. Who this book is written for This book is for intermediate to advanced Java Developers, who want to monitor, diagnose, profile and enhance the performance of their Java applications. It is also for people who want to understand more about the internal workings of a modern Java Virtual Machine or adaptive runtime. Parts of the book are suitable as course material for education about runtimes.
