Saratoga, CA (PRWEB) March 26, 2014 -- Thinking Software, Inc. announces that Race Catcher, the industry-leading dynamic code analyzer for Java™ and JVM-based applications, is available at no charge for open-source projects. Open-source developers and integrators now have the use of a powerful tool to identify and analyze concurrency issues. This class of bugs, including race conditions and deadlocks, is the hardest to diagnose because of their indeterminate nature.
Race Catcher Open Source Edition is easy to install from the Thinking Software website. A no-cost open-source license key can be requested the first time the software is launched. Race Catcher Open Source Edition is designed to work on a single machine to monitor locally running Java processes.
Thinking Software created the Race Catcher series of products for use by software developers, testers and vendors to continuously increase the reliability of their mission-critical applications.
With Race Catcher Open Source Edition, Open-source developers can take free advantage of Race Catcher’s ability to pinpoint race conditions and deadlocks, raising the quality of open-source software for all to use. Developers of proprietary applications that are integrated with open-source packages can be notified of any concurrency issues that arise in these open-source packages when invoked from their applications. Developers, testers and managers can evaluate Race Catcher in the context of standard open-source libraries, and experience the advantages of continuous dynamic code analysis.
