KL Group Introduces Ultimate Suite of Java Performance Tools Providing Performance Profiling, Memory Debugging, Code Coverage and Thread Analysis.TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 5, 1999--KL Group Inc., a leading provider of Java components and advanced development tools, announced today the release of JProbe Suite, a fully integrated set of tools designed to help developers debug To correct a problem in hardware or software. Debugging software means locating the errors in the source code (the program logic). Debugging hardware means finding errors in the circuit design (logical circuits) or in the physical interconnections of the circuits. thread, memory, and performance problems in Java applications.
With JProbe Profiler, JProbe Memory Debugger, JProbe Threadalyzer and JProbe Coverage, now available separately or as a fully integrated suite, developers have all the tools necessary to create business-ready Java applications. JProbe Suite analyzes applications that are written in the Sun Microsystems (NASDAQ NASDAQ

Though Java provides clear advantages in cross-platform delivery and ease of use, it also presents unique programming challenges that can disrupt application performance such as "loitering Loitering (IPA pronunciation: ['lɔɪtəˌrɪŋ] is an intransitive verb meaning to stand idly, to stop numerous times, or to delay and procrastinate. objects", unexpected references, over-use of objects, thread deadlocks, stalls and race conditions. By using the JProbe Suite of tools, developers are now able to diagnose and eliminate code errors and inefficiencies quickly and easily. The JProbe Suite identifies problem areas - down to errant lines of source code and displays a graphical representation of memory usage and calling relationships, making it easy for developers to improve application performance.
"JProbe 2.0 is truly a joy to use," said Evan Coyne Maloney, advance development group leader for Information Architects Corporation (NASDAQ: ALYD). "The program is remarkably fast and the interface is sleek, super-responsive and very intuitive. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to ship tight, robust, stable code using Java."
JProbe Suite includes:
- JProbe Memory Debugger: The most visually intuitive tool for finding and plugging memory leaks. - JProbe Performance Profiler: The most accurate tool available for pinpointing and eliminating performance bottlenecks. - JProbe Coverage: Quickly locates lines of untested code and precisely quantifies amount of code tested. - JProbe Threadalyzer: Predicts data race conditions and detects thread deadlocks that can jeopardize business applications.
"During a recent focus group, corporate developers told us about problems they often encounter while building real-world Java applications. They all agreed that Java makes them much more productive than other languages, but it also poses some unique problems involving memory, threading, and performance," said Alan Armstrong, product manager for KL Group Inc.'s JProbe product line. "For example, Threads are essential for building high-performance Java applications, but with them developers face serious challenges including concurrency Operations that are performed simultaneously within the computer. For example, dual-core CPUs provide complete overlapping of two independent processes. See dual core, hyperthreading, multiprocessing, multitasking, multithreading, SMP and MPP.
concurrency - multitasking issues, deadlocks, and data races problems that can stop business transactions. Our new JProbe Threadalyzer focuses specifically on thread issues, and, like every tool in the JProbe Suite, it helps developers uncover problems and ensure their applications are bullet-proof."
