    • Make the break
    • Don’t lose control
  • 3. Think!
    • Starting position
      • What is where?
      • How does it work now?

      • What will we gain?
    • Devising change
      • What is to be altered?
      • In what sequence?
    • “Is that clear?”
      • Do we all know what we’re doing?
  • 4. Think! – Umlanji
    • Picture your Caché or Ensemble classes
    • Create UML class diagrams directly from your class definitions
      • Accurate
      • Complete
      • Up to date
    • Understand someone else’s classes
    • Explain your classes to others
  • 5. Umlanji’s Slipstreaming
    • Leveraging existing UML modelling tools
      • Umlanji generates XMI file from class definitions
        • Poseidon from Gentleware
        • Enterprise Architect from Sparx
        • others
    • Exploiting Caché Studio extensibility
      • Integrates as an add-in
  • 6. Do!
    • Work accurately and efficiently
    • Focus effectively
    • Troubleshoot rapidly
  • 7. Do! – Serenji
    • M and COS code editor running on Windows
      • Caché and Ensemble (INTs, MACs and INCs)
      • GT.M
      • Also M21, MSM and DSM
    • Syntax colouring as you type
    • Collapsible blocks for dotted-DOs and {…}
    • Boundary marking, and highlighting of unreachable code
    • ‘ Live’ subroutine and extrinsic function calls
      • Tip showing comment and parameter mapping
      • Navigable – jump to target, go back
    • Bookmarks
    • Tabbed multi-document view, splittable panes
  • 8. Doing More
    • Control interactive or background processes
      • Click in margin to set breakpoints, optionally conditional or deferred
      • Step in, over, out, run to here
      • Break on change of arbitrary expression
      • Break on error
    • Hover to see value of variable or expression
    • View symbol table at each stack level
    • Have direct access to execution context
      • e.g. change variables, then continue
    • Debug faulty code, understand functioning code
  • 9. Serenji’s Slipstreaming
    • RE/parser
      • Parser for M syntax
      • Implemented in M
    • MSM-Workstation
      • Compact M engine, easily deployed
      • Runs on Windows

    • Version control, workflow and configuration management for:
      • M and COS code & data
      • Classes
      • Web pages (CSP, EWD, HTML)
      • Arbitrary text or binary files
    • Retain versions of your code as you change it
    • Control and integrate concurrent changes
    • Manage multiple release cycles
    • Specify workflow controlling how changes are deployed
  • 12. VC/m’s Slipstreaming
    • Web browser technologies
      • DOM and Javascript
        • Script the manipulation of the Document Object Model
