It is because of this fact that learning how to debug your applications is such an essential and crucial part of the development process. Here we will cover the best way that a developer can debug their app and eliminate any frustrating problems from the get-go.

Essentially, “debugging” means finding any errors in your app and then troubleshooting and figuring out the best way to fix whatever problem is occurring and keeping your app from running properly. Developers can debug an app a number of different ways. They can try running it on a device or they can use a simulator.

A simulator, such as BlackBerry’s smartphone simulator, is a popular option. Usually, debugging an app on a simulator gives developers a better idea of what the problem is because the simulator is equipped with tools specifically put in place to find problems in an application.

Sometimes -- though it’s rare -- developers will have to debug on a smartphone device itself, because some apps may not run in the simulator. An example of this would be trying to make network connections through a carrier WAP gateway. The easiest way to debug, though, is with another piece of software developed by RIM, which is the manufacturer of BlackBerry. Enter: Eclipse.
