What is wrong with this code:
jclass win_clazz = jniEnv->FindClass("java/lang/String");
jmethodID this_id = jniEnv->GetMethodID(win_clazz,"<init>","()V");
jvmtiError err = jvmti->GetLocalVariableTable(this_id,&count,&var_entry);
The last function call gives me JVMTI_ERROR_ABSENT_INFORMATION. I would likt to know why? Any thoughts
JVMTI_ERROR_ABSENT_INFORMATION: Class information does not include local variable information.
And the no-args constructor for java.lang.String doesn't even have any local variables.
What are you doing?
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.
