Field of Threads or FOT is an Eclipse plug-in that generates visualizations that can help in understanding the interactions between threads and fields. Specific to FOT is that its visualization puts the field or variable central and maps the interactions that shaped the value to its current value in sequence. It is our conjecture that this creates a diagram
that is closer to the in-mind representation of how software developers understand concurrency.
