Nice summary of monitoring features in J2SE
By cwebster on Feb 24, 2007
There is an interesting blog entry by Mandy Chung on the monitoring capabilities of J2SE. Worth a look to get an overview and references to other blogs describing how to use these cool features. If you are running on windows, you might want to get the pid from the task manager to use jstack. The processes tab has a column (by default hidden) for the pid. Turn the column by selecting the processes tab,then under the view menu option use the select columns action.
