Tech-Ed: Telerik Previews JustTrace and JustDecompile Tools
.NET component and tools provider Telerik today announced the public beta release of its JustTrace and JustDecompile development tools. The new products join the existing JustCode analysis and refactoring tool and JustMock mocking tool to fill out Telerik's offerings across what it calls "the complete write-test-optimization cycle."
JustTrace is an application profiling tool that addresses performance and memory profiling across Web and desktops applications. A standalone tool that integrates with Visual Studio, JustTrace allows developers to kick off a profiling session directly from a Visual Studio project, said Todd Anglin, chief evangelist at Telerik.
"We noticed a lot of tools today require confusing configurations or they run very slowly," Anglin said, adding: "If we do our job right the developer will barely know the tools are there, they just know they are developing faster."
Also unveiled at the Tech-Ed Conference today is a fresh public beta of Telerik JustDecompile, a freely-available assembly browsing and decompile tooling tool for .NET developers. Based on Telerik's JustCode code analysis product, JustDecompile enables "one-click exploration and analysis of compiled .NET Framework-based assemblies," according to a company statement.
"We brought a lot of innovations in JustCode and delivered them in JustDecompile," said Anglin, who also emphasized the tool's improved UI and ability to decompile to both Visual Basic and C#.
Both JustDecompile and JustTrace are standalone tools that work alongside Visual Studio. Shipping versions of the product are expected in Telerik's Q2 release cycle, expected around "mid-summer," according to Anglin. Developers can download the beta of JustTrace here and the beta of JustDecompile here.
