Debugging Symbian Applications – A Hard Task

Posted by – May 30, 2008

I have been working hard trying to fix a bug with timeout engine of a symbian app used to handle socket timeout, sometimes the application crashes when the first timeout happens and others after several timeouts.

We had used large TBuf descriptors in many places of application, I changed to RBuf, no success.

I hope find the main reason of this bug soon and get more expertise with Symbian application development and debug.

    In the end I could fix this bug by calling RSocket::CancelAll() when stopping one of my ActiveObjects. I made many improvement while searching for this bug fix.
