Dtrace and Java: Spanning the Observability Gap

Not being a Java programmer this session may not be as useful as I will have hoped. However many, many, many of my customers are doing more, more and more java apps.

It will end up that I was correct, this is interesting and good to know, but it isn't going to be quite as useful for day-to-day and I had hoped it might be.

OK, DAVE is cool (missed acronym) something like Dtrace Advanced Visualization Environment. The call tree view...neet. I can see where this would have immediately pointed to something that we worked our way to and then had to argue about. (I'm not sure that if we had it we could have run it, but still cool and the developers could have done it)

JSDT (self defined probes...also cool)
