In the previous work, we presented HDT for locating logical errors in Java programs. The HDT locates an erroneous method at an execution tree using an algorithmic program debugging technique and locates a statement with errors in the erroneous method using a step-wise program debugging. It reduced the number of programmer debugging in Java programs. But the HDT still increases the number of debugging because the size of the recent programs increases than the past programs and the number of methods is increasing. This paper proposes HDTS using a program slicing technique (PST) at the MDT. HDTS can reduce the number of programmer debugging. Specially, the more the number of methods and statements increases, the more HDTS has effects.
