JavaTM Virtual Machine Debugger Interface (JVMDI)

Documentation Contents
The JavaTM Virtual Machine Debugger Interface (JVMDI) is a low-level debugging API. The JVMDI can be used in conjunction with the Java Native Interface (JNI) by a debugger to query the current status of an application and to control its execution.

Higher-level, out-of-process interfaces for Java language debuggers are being developed. The Java Debug Interface (JDI) and the Java Debug Wire Protocol (JDWP) will be released soon. Early Access versions of these interfaces are available as part of the Java Platform Debugger Architecture package, available on the Java Developer Connection web site.
