Time to update the J2SE Troubleshooting Guide!
By user12820862 on Sep 29, 2005
It's now time to start thinking about updating the document for Mustang. The initial document focused on the HotSpotTM virtual machine. The document for Mustang needs to be wider in scope and cover troubleshooting problems with client-side applications, deployment, and many other areas. Mustang brings a lot of new and updated diagnostic features. I touched on the heap dump capabilities here, and Sundar has started a series on the Object Query Language feature in jhat. There are many other useful items and these need to be written up.
If you have ideas for areas that should be covered in the updated Troubleshooting Guide please send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, send feedback if you think that one big document isn't the right format for this - the original reason for putting everything into one document was to allow people to print it out. I don't know many trees suffered needlessly so send feedback if you think an alternative format would be better. Finally, if you would like to contribute content then please step forward. In particular if you recently diagnosed a really awkward problem with a deployed application then others might benefit from a write-up of the steps that you took to diagnose it.
