Java Flight Data Recorder

Chronon – The ‘Time Travelling’ Debugger

Jessica Thornsby

Chronon is a new, “time travelling” debugger.

Chronon consists of a ‘flight data recorder’ that records lines of code executed inside a program, and saves them to a file which can then be shared and played back on Chronon’s ‘time travelling debugger.’ In this way, Chronon aims to address the problem of ‘Non Reproducible’ bugs. Recordings are platform independent, and Chronon should be able to record any type of Java program.
