Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Eliminate the Need to Comment/Remove Debug Statements

Often, while developing a system, you need to put a lot of debug statements in the code, all which have to be commented/removed before delivering the application. There's a class with a static method that can be used to turn on/off debug statements without having to comment them or remove them. Here it is:
class MyDebug{

    private static boolean bDEBUG = true;
    public static void printDebug(String s){


To print a debug statement, a call to MyDebug.printDebug(s) is all that is needed. To turn off debug statements, just change the bDEBUG static variable to false and recompile the application.
