Score 1 for VS

Very cool feature – if youhave an exception you can ask the IDE to “unwind” and go back to the line just before the exception. I always wanted that in eclipse or IDEA but never saw it. This definetly is a nice feature for actually figuring out some more information about what caused the exception.

    Its pretty cool the amount of stuff you can do in debug with Visual Studio 2005 and .NET 2.0. It saves loads of time having to stop the debugger and then go back in etc etc.

    This extension really makes debuging and unit testing nice in Visual Studio.

    Hey Matt:
    Thanks for the tip. The java developer in me balks at paying anything to “extend the IDE”. I know $100 is not much in terms of my time but it still makes me cringe.

    As an update – Are there shorcuts for commonly used code? For example in eclipse I could type sysout and it would write System.out.println. If I wanted to I could make more of my own. Does that exist in VS2K5?

    If you are using Visual Studio .NET 2005, check out the code snippits. Makes it very easy and quick to develop with.
