comment Prior art for a web-based system for commissioning software development
I think a bug tracker like bugzilla wouldn't have enough overlap to be considered prior art. Mainly it doesn't have the part where you download the different versions that address the specific request you made.

Need dates and references in order for it to be remotely useful.

Unfortunately, the answer "I have prior art and it's me" isn't sufficient to show prior art. We'd need links to references that show your answer is sufficient (that's why someone downvoted you)

Can you add anything in print that says this with a date?

comment Auto correcting semantic code errors by executing code snippets and seeing which ones produce no errors
That's part of the patent, but the entire patent describes that system PLUS the act of executing the code (i.e. not just looking up ) to see if it works, and then using that as the correct substitution. The execution is the key component.

comment Auto correcting semantic code errors by executing code snippets and seeing which ones produce no errors
The key here is that they are not executing the code under the circumstance when an error in the code happens. This is not a try/catch thing. They are, in an IDE, a development environment, trying to fix semantic errors in the way the user has typed code, by running alternate code fragments and seeing if they succeed. It's not related to what you are describing.

I think this isn't prior art either. The patent isn't for a classic case of error handling, it is for CORRECTING semantic errors by trying other little snippets, and executing them to see if the program compiles correctly and runs correctly. Its not related to CFTRY or CFCATCH blocks at all, but I very much appreciate the time you spent answering.
