Getting started

You will need:

  • The Time Travel Debug for Java plugin installed into IntelliJ IDEA.

  • The LiveRecorder for Java Recording and Replay tools.

  • Your application or test case running under an OpenJDK or Oracle JVM on a supported Linux distribution.

Installing the Time Travel Debug for Java plugin

In IntelliJ IDEA Settings (Ctrl-Alt-S, or ⌘, on macOS) › Plugins › Marketplace, search for LiveRecorder, press Install and restart IntelliJ IDEA.

Under Settings › Build, Execution, Deployment › Debugger › LiveRecorder › License Key, paste your license key. If you don’t have a licensed copy of LiveRecorder for Java, you can obtain a free trial.


Recording and Replay tools

The Recording and Replay tools are supplied as two zip files; LR4J-Record-*.zip and LR4J-Replay-*.zip. Refer to Recording an application and Live Debugging for how to use these.
