Tracking Bugs with “Pure” Managed Code

Jesse is working on a bug tracking system in 100% managed code. Scott has posted an awesome article on the Myth of .NET Purity. Given that I agree with Scott, you might think I’d disagree with Jesse avoiding other system on the basis that they “aren’t .NET based”. However, Jesse isn’t just building a stand alone system – it’s integrated with VS.NET. Also, the way you can build bug tracking directly into your production app is very cool. I wonder if Jesse is inspired at all by “Production Debugging for .NET Applications“.

I’m interested in Jesse’s system because of these features. The whole 100% managed code thing is nice, but as an end user of the system, I just want it to work.

Jesse – you’re building in support for web services as well, right?
