How do you detect Memory Leaks in WWA?

Answers

  • Hi Gotham,

    You can detect leaks much in the same way you would with other applications today.  The piece you may be missing however is what process do you target?

    If you open Task Manager you can select the More details button at the bottom of the window.  Then right click on your application (MashUp for example) and choose Go to details from the context menu.  You will see the process name is WWAHost.exe.

    Right click on the Description column header and choose Select columns... and from there you can add memory columns and the Process ID (PID).

  • For JavaScript memory analysis for Windows Store apps, you can check out a new feature introduced in Visual Studio 2012 Update 1: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/jj819177.aspx
