FireDetective is a tool that allows you to better understand Ajax web applications. It links execution traces from both the client side (the browser) and the server side (in this case a Java EE server) together.

FireDetective was created by Nick Matthijssen during his MSc study at TU Delft and the University of Victoria.


It can be downloaded from FireDetective 0.1 (zip with source code).
