Oracle® Developer Studio 12.5: Debugging a Program with dbx

Exit Print View

Updated: June 2016

Debugging a Core File

If the program that dumped core was dynamically linked with any shared libraries, debug the core file in the same operating environment in which it was created. dbx has limited support for the debugging of “mismatched” core files for example, core files produced on a system running a different version or patch level of the Oracle Solaris operating system.

Note - dbx cannot tell you the state of a Java application from a core file as it can with native code.
