Thanks for your reply. I am already looking into JVMTI. I will try the other one too. But I want to make my question clear. I don't need to monitor the entry and exit to a method. I want to know which methods of an object [say objA] are being called and the methods called by this object[objA]. I just need to log these method calls.
None of them are easy alternatives. Sure, JVMTI will solve your purpose, but if speed is not an issue, I would suggest an "all java" alternative using spring interceptors. They will use byte code instrumentation at runtime (invisible to you) but what you want to do will literally be a piece of cake with spring interceptors. Ofcourse, your objects will all have to be spring beans.
Look into some spring / AOP tutorials on how to do this. A simple google search and you will have what you need.
