I have a program that starts and then just stops without giving me any output to the console. The problem is that I have no access to its source code. More precisely, it is a javaws :) which I use in a specific context.
So what I would like is to get its stack trace at the moment when it stops, so that I would get some info about why it just exits.
I try to use jdb. I saw a very interesting command that jdb has:
monitor <command> -- execute command each time the program stops
The problem is that I don't understand how to use it! What can <command> be? I tried:
and got no output; javaws still exits and jdb terminates with the (normal) message:
The application exited
The manual is also not so helpful - it details the usage of breakpoints etc. but not the usage of monitor.
