Mostly, I am trying to understand what I can and cannot do with jvmti. Specifically, as I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I am trying to get a hold of an object that is being instantiated in jvm by another process, and I took this code snippet from one of the earlier posts in this group. The idea was that the method should always have a this field, so if I can get one of the methods of a class, and then somehow get to the "this" field, I will solve my problem. Obviously it does not work. If you have any better way to achieve what I am trying to do, I would love to hear it.
