Java Mission Control & Java VisualVM

With the release of JDK 7 Update 40, Java Mission Control 5.2 (well described by Markus Eisele here) is part of the JDK, together with Java VisualVM, which has been there since JDK 6 Update 23:

Details about that, and other new JDK features, are here:

However, an interesting thing is that, because Java Mission Control is based on Eclipse RCP, and Java VisualVM is based on the NetBeans Platform, JDK 7 Update 40 is the very first release of the JDK that contains both Eclipse RCP and the NetBeans Platform. Without those platforms being in the JDK, neither of these tools could exist.

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
