- overview of the serviceability features
- javadocs for the HotSpot Serviceability Agent in JDK 8. These APIs are unsupported so should be used and there are no plans to officially support them in the future. They might change in any release, even update releases. Developers should use them with great care and at your their own risk.. Also, note that the Serviceability Agent module in JDK 9 does not export any package, and these APIs are encapsulated. We can use the --add-exports workaround in the Java command line to be able to use any package in the SA module. Please see more details on the Module System and how to use --add-exports with Java 9 here.
