What can your VM do for you?

This week is busy like all the rest. Following the trend of adding in new features all the time, here is another interesting one for you. You can now check the capabilities of the VM used to launch a program by inspecting the properties of any Java debug element in the Debug View (to do so right-click on the element in the view and click the 'Properties...' menu item).

The properties dialog is the same one as before, which contains the process information, but now also the VM capabilities (as long as the target is not terminated or disconnected). You can even expand or collapse items on the page depending on what you want to see, and the page will remember that setting for the next time you open the dialog to view capabilities.

So if you were always wondering "hmm can my VM do that?" now you can check for yourself. To use this latest feature you will need to wait for this weeks I-build, or for tomorrows N-build.

  1. Hi,

    Good idea on the blog. One suggestion I would have is to try to remember to give your posts a title. When viewing your site feed ( in my RSS reader I see this for the 3 posts so far.

    No Title
    No Title
    No Title

    Would help to have the title information to help navigate when there are more posts.

    Thanks...Jeff Turnham, IBM
