Software debugging is one of the most time-consuming and expensive tasks in software development. There are several tools that contribute to this process to become faster and more efficient, but are not integrated with each other, nor provide an intuitive interface. These tools can be integrated to create an IDE plug-in, which gathers the most important debugging information into one place. GZoltar is a new project to create that missing plug-in. The main goal of GZoltar project is to reduce debugging process time and costs.
