The Java Platform Debugger Architecture (JPDA) provides the infrastructure you need to build end-user debugger applications for the Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE). It includes the following three-layered APIs:
|JPDA Documentation:||J2SE 1.4.2 | J2SE 5.0 | Java SE 6|
|Java command line debug options:||J2SE 1.4.2 | J2SE 5.0 | Java SE 6|
In Java SE 6, new functionality has been added to JPDA for walking the heap, getting events for monitor contended enter/entered, forcing a method to return prematurely, getting the constant pool from a class, and more.
