Crash Reporter?


#1

Hi guys,

Does anyone here have any experience with (3rd party) crash reporters? The kind that pops up if your app crashes and asks the user to send in the crash-log and system configuration.

We would like to implement such a system and we found some frameworks that can do it:

Cross-platform Framework used by Firefox:
http://code.google.com/p/google-breakpad/

Windows Framework:
http://code.google.com/p/crashrpt/

OSX Frameworks:
http://cmcrashreporter.codingmammoth.com (simple and good documentation)
http://www.infinite-loop.dk/developer/index.php (old)
http://www.zathras.de/angelweb/sourcecode.htm#UKCrashReporter (vague)

Jules, perhaps you can find any satisfaction in implementing a cross platform crash reporter in JUCE? :wink:

well what do ya know, i was looking at the same thing today. so far i was wondering about how JUCE_CATCH_UNHANDLED_EXCEPTIONS works. But the whole C++ exception handling on win32 with Visual is very complex. A cross platform thinggy would be nice.

I currently use, ILCrashReporter, it can be found here, http://code.google.com/p/ilcrashreporter-ng/. There are many free and open source crash reporter currently available, Am not very sure if it’s worth the effort creating another one using juce.
