Every developer in the Java world has to deal with exceptions. An exception stack trace is the easiest way to tell, what’s wrong in your program. In IntelliJ IDEA we try to make analysis of a stack trace more convenient for developers. As you might know, IntelliJ IDEA has Exception Analyzer, which helps you analyze a stack trace.
Today I would like to tell you briefly, how you can save your time dealing with stack traces.
The everyday story about exceptions:
- Receive an exception by e-mail, bug tracker or messenger
- Copy it to clipboard
- Switch to IntelliJ IDEA
- Go to Analyze → Analyze Stacktrace
- Press OK
Now you can easily skip 4th and 5th steps. Just check the option in Analyze dialog to analyze with pleasure.
