JavaTM Virtual Machine Tool Interface (JVM TI)

Documentation Contents

The JVMTM tool interface (JVM TI) is a native programming interface for use by tools. It provides both a way to inspect the state and to control the execution of applications running in the JavaTM virtual machine (JVM). JVM TI supports the full breadth of tools that need access to JVM state, including but not limited to: profiling, debugging, monitoring, thread analysis, and coverage analysis tools.

Note: JVM TI was introduced at JDKTM 5.0. JVM TI replaces the Java Virtual Machine Profiler Interface (JVMPI) and the Java Virtual Machine Debug Interface (JVMDI) which, as of JDK 6, are no longer provided.
