Fixing Weird Threading Issues

6 AM October 17, 2006

For those of us with weird Java threading problems, StackTrace is magic. Try this:

  1. Start a Java application. Anything will do, even Eclipse or IDEA.
  2. Point your browser at their download page.
  3. Click the "Launch" icon.
  4. Click through the warnings on AdaptJ's dodgy Web Start certificate.
  5. Now, from the "Process" menu, select "Thread Dump". It shows a dialog with a drop down menu. Choose the process you started way back in step 1.
  6. Click OK
  7. Ta dah! You are the proud owner of shiny new stack trace.
