Geodesic debuts Mozilla debugging demo

Author: JT Smith

Geodesic Systems, a leading provider of performance and availability management software that
helps business critical applications run faster, crash less and report more, will demonstrate the power of its
Great Circle (tm) runtime diagnostic solution by offering live debugging demos of Mozilla, one of today's largest open source projects
and the browser suite on which AOL Time Warner's Netscape 6 is based.

This groundbreaking demo is now live on the Geodesic web site (www.geodesic.com/gc_demo.html). Visitors to the site can run
Geodesic Great Circle (tm) live on one of the current Mozilla sources, build a database of bugs and errors, and perform memory
profiling. The demo also will be available to attendees at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo, Intel booth #739, January 29-February
1 in New York. Geodesic will update the demo weekly using the latest Mozilla sources and the reports will be shared with the Mozilla
developer community.

"Running Great Circle(tm)against Mozilla gives Geodesic an opportunity to show how the solution can successfully take on any large
enterprise level application," said Michael Spertus, Geodesic's founder and chief technology officer. "The Mozilla developer
community always is looking for ways to strengthen the reliability of the program's code, so we're glad to share the results of this
demo as a means to help."

Great Circle (tm),now also available for the Linux platform, is an advanced debugging environment that allows developers to test,
diagnose and resolve memory problems. It pinpoints elusive errors that can cause excessive application memory use and devastating
crashes 10 to 30 times faster than other diagnostic tools. No rebuilding or relinking of the applications is required. Using a web
browser interface, Great Circle (tm) allows remote debugging through a LAN or over the Internet. Other Great Circle (tm)features
include memory error reporting with direct links to source code, third-party and legacy code error detection, and low memory
simulation testing mode. In addition to development tools like Great Circle(tm)Geodesic also offers Runtime Solutions that
automatically improve application reliability and performance by protecting against many of these errors at runtime.
