Replay Fast Forwards Java Execution Monitoring

Expanded web UI with access to logs and screen shots

Replay Solutions has announced the 3.5 version update of its ReplayDIRECTOR application recording and replay product. The application monitoring and diagnostics company is aiming to fuel uptake of its tool, which is designed to document and fix logic, performance, and security defects in Java programs.

Vying for a greater share of the enterprise app analysis market, Replay details a new and expanded web console, which integrates with detailed log entries containing other “high-value” execution information such as http transaction profiles, defect markers, and screen shots of user activity.

Developers then have access to this application diagnostic information for sorting, searching, and additional diagnosis via replay. Shooting for a “suitable for all users” hook on its tagline, the company says that the ReplayDIRECTOR web UI is effective for either manual or automated QA testers – and also for support groups who need to prepare defects for triage by development.

“The expanded web UI of ReplayDIRECTOR 3.5 is the front edge of a wave of deep application inspection that we will be presenting in a wide variety of contexts – from IDEs to ALM and APM dashboards,” said Larry Lunetta, CEO, Replay Solutions. “Because our recordings replicate the original program execution with 100% fidelity, we have access to execution information and statistics that are unavailable from any other source.”

With this release, ReplayDIRECTOR 3.5 also now supports “Dual Tracking”, a process which allows a developer to initiate and correlate two replays from two different application servers in a single Eclipse instance. Dual Tracking is designed to facilitate the coordinated analysis of application modules working in a distributed system configuration.
