Visualize Java objects in a simple and powerful way.
DoodleDebug is a graphical drop-in replacement for
System.out.println(). With the Eclipse plugin, it smoothly integrates into the IDE and replaces the Console. And your output is inspectable! Even after your program stopped running, you can click on the doodles to inspect them!
If nothing else,

DoodleDebug comes with a number of beautiful renderings for commonly usesd Java data types. They allow a quick start without the need of customization and cover most everyday situations in software deveopment. We render Collections and Maps, several Image types, Throwables, tables (nested arrays) and matrices.
An extended tutorial can be found by downloading and installing DoodleDebug (as an eclipse plugin).

If everything went well, you should now see two new buttons on top, one to open the DoodleDebug output view and one to open the tutorial. The best way to check if DoodleDebug is working is to go through this tutorial. ;-)
