debugging an application for deployment, advice?
Posted on 2004-03-22
I'm about to deploy my first VB application to a customer... I need some advice.
I am attempting to do extensive beta-testing before I deploy the application and would like to know how I should perform this from others who have done it.
First, I placed in each function/subroutine:
on error goto doSomethingError
'whatever I put in the function
Msgbox "Error found at doSomething " & err.Description
is this the best way to catch errors during the testing phase and during the release?
Also I will have a few other individuals testing the application on different computers since I know that being the developer I probably am used to running it a particular way and they can find things I won't think of. What else can I do to make sure the deployment is successful? Is there anything else in VB I should implement that will be very good to have before or during deployment? Please let me know. I have completed a java application before that worked great on release but I'm still kind of new with VB stuff so in a sense you can consider me a beginner on deployment in VB. ;-) thanks for any advice
