This session provides a guide to the hidden gems of the JDK, knowledge usually reserved for tool authors. You will find that you don’t have to be a tool author to benefit from being able to do deeper inspection of your applications and gain greater control of threads in your tests. The presentation provides an overview of the additional power tools in the JVM tooling interface and may quite possibly inspire attendees to write the next interesting Java tool. The core of the presentation is the tools developed by Neo Technology for inspecting object graphs and memory layout, forcing race conditions in multithreaded tests, and discovering memory leaks.
