JRockit Mission Control 2.0 Sneak Peek (Migrated from the old BEA blog)

Mission Control 2.0, internally dubbed Energy (since it's mc^2), is going to be released as part of the JRockit R27.1 release, which is currently targeted at mid December. Since December isn't that far off, I thought I'd give you a little sneak peak of what it will look like.

Mission Control 2.0 is:

  • A set of powerful, low overhead, production and development time tools that can be used to monitor, manage and profile your application. It also includes a powerful tool for hunting down memory leaks.
  • The new JRockit JVM tools platform based on RCP technology.
  • Some of the improvements compared to Mission Control 1.0 are:

  • All the tools are running within the JRockit Mission Control application.
  • More metrics (including metrics for the Deterministic GC (available with WLRT)).
  • Auto-discovery of local JVMs + auto launching of the management agent when connecting to them (>=5.0).
  • Support for in-memory communication with the management agent of locally discovered JVMs (>=5.0).
  • Support for the JRockit Discovery Protocol for discovering running JRockits on the network.
  • Support for connecting from Mission Control 2.0 to R27.1 and R26.4 (both 1.4 and 5.0)JRockit JVM's.
  • Native platform L&F.
  • Drag and Drop support.
  • Context sensitive, built in, help.
  • Possible to manipulate views freely, which for instance makes it easy to compare profiling recordings head to head.
  • Pluggable architecture.

    Our Japanese customers will hopefully be delighted to find that the Mission Control GUI is now localized. Here's a screen shot (click to get the full image):

    In the not very distant future (no target date yet) Mission Control will also be offered as a set of eclipse/workshop plug-ins from an update site, so that you always can have the latest Mission Control running from within your development environment.

    The upgrade path from Mission Control 1.0 to Mission Control 2.0 is fairly easy; Mission Control 1.0 enterprise licenses are compatible with 2.0 - the upgrade is free!

    The next addition to the Mission Control family of tools is already being worked on, and even though I can't reveal any details just yet, I can tell you that the little Java Developer within me is jumping up and down with joy and excitement. ;)
