DSF Features

Debug view

  • Launch
    • Check: debug perspective activated on launch
    • Check: debug view activated on launch
    • Check: stack frame selected on break on main after launch
  • Target
    • Check: process name shown in label
    • Expand process to show threads.
    • Select the target
    • Check: resume/suspend operations are enabled
    • Try resuming suspending
    • Check: all threads should resume/suspend
    • Check: stepping operations should be disabled
    • Terminating the target
    • Check: Terminated target should remain in the view with a "<terminated>" label prefix a terminated target icon.
    • Run program to the completion,
    • Check: target should change state to terminated.
  • Threads
    • Check: thread label shows thread ID and the current status.
    • Select a thread.
    • Check: resume/suspend operations should be enabled
    • Check: step operations should also be enabled
    • Try resuming/suspending/stepping
    • Try stepping fast by holding down the F5 key
    • Run a multi-threaded program
    • Check: new threads should be added to the bottom of the thread list as they are created
    • Check: exited threads are removed from the thread list
    • Expand threads to show stack traces
    • Check: When stepping a thread, other threads should remain collapsed/expanded as they were
  • Stack frames
    • Check: frame label should contain:
      • Stack frame number
      • Function name if known
      • File and line
      • Current program counter
    • Select a stack frame
    • Check: source editor is opened and positioned to the location of the PC
    • Check: run control operations should be the same as when a thread is selected
    • Check: when a thread hits a breakpoint, that thread's stack frame is automatically selected

Variables view

  • Stop a debugged program when it has at least two stack levels
  • Open variables view
    • Check that all variables of the current stack are shown
    • Check that all values are shown
    • Check that the type column can be added and removed with the button
    • Check that complex variables have a little arrow on the left
    • Check that the arrow can be expanded to show children
    • Select different variables in the view and check that the details pane shows the different formats
  • Scroll down in the variable view
    • Check that newly displayed variables are correct
  • Change the stack frame in the debug view
    • Check that the variables view properly shows the variables for the selected stack frame
  • Go back to the previous stack frame in the debug view
    • Check that the variables view properly shows the variables for the selected stack frame
  • Step the program
    • Check that variable changes are reflected in the view and highlighted in color
  • Select a variable and change its value in the variables view
    • Check that the value is shown in the view
  • Step the program
    • Check that the value for the changed variable is still correct
