DebugWare Patterns (Part 8)

Troubleshooting Unit of Work is another pattern frequently used in manual troubleshooting and debugging. This is usually some independent and self-sufficient list of steps to perform to check something from a troubleshooting checklist or a manual and can be implemented as a separate loadable module, a class to reuse or a function to call. Output from such units of work can be stored in a blackboard system or processed by tools implementing Checklist DebugWare pattern. Typical example is an implementation of the following document:

Required Permissions and Rights for the Ctx_CpsvcUser Account

as a tool:

CTX_CpsvcUser Re-creation Tool for 32-Bit and 64-Bit Versions of Presentation Server 4.5
