OpenJDK 11, tools of the trade - JVM Advent
In my talk about the Security Manager, I demo a hack that takes advantage of the Attach API. The later requires to know about the PID of the JVM one wants to attach to. Because my good friend Evgeny Mandrikov couldn’t attend my talk at a recent conference, I did a quick private demo just for him. To get the PID of the JVM I wanted to attach to, I used the ps -ef | grep java command. At that point, Evgeny told me about the jps command, and I understood there were a lot of JDK commands I didn’t know about, besides the most common ones. Here’s a list about the ones that are useful to fix issues on deployed applications.
