Hacking away on Thermostat

About a month back I’ve started hacking away on Thermostat. It’s an instrumentation and monitoring tool for the HotSpot Java virtual machine. Here is a list of features which have been implemented so far and here is a rough timeline of what’s coming. Suggestions about features you’d like to see are always welcome!

My contributions so far have been mostly to get started on a basic Eclipse plug-in-based Thermostat client. Here is a short screencast showing it in action (Webm format):

Keep your eyes peeled for updates on this 🙂

  1. Can I find somewhere a pre-release of this eclipse plugin 🙂 ?

      Sébastien: At this point there is no easy way for you to try it, unfortunately. Having said that it’s in the thermostat HG repo (eclipse folder). I’m currently working on making it easier for users to try it out. I’ll reply here once there’s a preliminary p2 repository available.

    Users can now try this prototype by cloning the repo and building thermostat and eclipse bits from source:

    $ hg clone http://icedtea.classpath.org/hg/thermostat/
    $ cd thermostat
    (read readme for building Thermstat core)

    Then follow instructions in the commit message here: http://icedtea.classpath.org/hg/thermostat/rev/5451224fbd0e

    We’ll make an Eclipse update site with this available online only soon. Cheers!
