Remove jhat tool

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      jhat was added in JDK 6 and its original implementation was from java.net HAT project [1]. jhat is an experimental, unsupported tool. There hasn't been much update to jhat tool in the JDK. In addition, there are several better heap dump visualizer/analyzer emerged since JDK 5/6 serviceability support.

      It may be good to consider deprecating jhat and removing it from a future release.
