The initial version was written by Stephen R. Bourne. ADB is the standard debugger on Solaris and the Solaris kernel debugger kadb that was introduced with SunOS-3.5 (1986) is a minor variant of adb.
On Solaris, ADB was replaced by the Modular Debugger mdb with Solaris 8 (2000) and the ADB command-line interface now is emulated by mdb when it is called as adb. Mdb has become OpenSource with OpenSolaris.
