Cool! Any plans for OSX support?

Yes, I can make DTrace GUI to work on OSX if there is enough demand for it.

Both Netbeans and DTarce are supported on OSX. So it should be very easy to make DTrace GUI to work with OSX.

NetBeans IDE is usually run as a non-root user on Unix systems (a healthy practice :-)). Hence, if you have installed the DTrace plugin for NetBeans on your Solaris installation, you will not be able to use it since DTrace requires root priviliges.

Follow this earlier blog post at http://blogs.sun.com/observatory/entry/dtrace_privileges to enable DTrace access from your non-root account.

Once you have done that, you will be able to use the plugin and also access DTrace as a non-root user!

Mac OS X support would be great.

I'll be needing to dive into DTrace this summer, so Mac OS X support would be lovely.

Any chance of OS X support for DTrace plugin ?

I am not sure if /usr/share/lib/java/dtrace.jar is ported to MacOS X! I cannot find it on my Mac system. The Chime component of the DTrace GUI will not work without this jar file. Is it OK to port only the Toolkit component of the DTrace GUI to MacOS X?
