      Description

      Native programs' method entry and return points (and any PC) can be traced by DTrace using the 'pid' provider, with no changes needed for the target application. We need to provide a similar mechanism for Java, where the DTrace user can specify specific Java methods or return points and DTrace will trace only those, without any modification to the application (and with limited performance impact, if only a few tracepoints are chosen).
