I know. JavaOne has already come and gone, and I promised, after my JavaOne submission snafu, to publish a Tutorial here by the end of JavaOne. Well, life happened, and here we are, a few weeks after JavaOne.
That said, here it is finally, the first draft of the JMC tutorial:
The tutorial instructions are in the JMC_Tutorial.pdf included in the root of the zip.
In this tutorial you can:
- Install JMC (either the stand alone version, the Eclipse version, or both)
- Do Java Flight Recordings
- Analyse Flight Recordings
- Watch a laser kill monsters
- Use experimental plug-ins such as the Java FX and WLS plug-ins for Flight Recorder, as well as JOverflow for doing memory dump analysis.
- Get to play with jcmd
The Tutorial has hours worth of material, so do the exercises that you find the most interesting first. Also, you may want to print out the tutorial and keep it beside your computer to minimize the switching back and forth between JMC, Eclipse and the pdf.
Hope you find this helpful!
(Please don’t hesitate to send suggestions or any bugs/typos found my way!)
