Great talk - open, honest and informative. Thanks for keeping it techy. I'm very hopeful for the future of Java under Oracle's stewardship. Keep up the good work and hopefully all of the politics and litigation don't become a big distraction.

Speaking of JVM features: Are there any plans to expose the stack frame's operand stack via JDI? There are several situations where you have a result of a native method in the operand stack but cannot really show it without changing the code to save it into a temp variable to show it in the variables view... It would also make it easier to build a bytecode level debugger (every assembly debugger has a Registers view) which will get more important with more instrumentation and with different languages running on the same VM...
