Description iformanek 2005-02-18 17:20:45 UTC
Most profilers give the developer the possibility 
to compile the profiled application against some 
small-ish API, and be able to turn on/off 
instrumentation and obtaining results from within 
the profiled application using code.

This is a commonly used feature by the NetBeans 
profiling team, indicating that it might be one 
of those things that in real life can really help 
to get focused/specific results.

Will not be public in 1.0
Comment 2 iformanek 2005-06-20 11:08:21 UTC
Not for 1.0
Comment 3 hanakrizova 2005-09-05 13:39:49 UTC
We develop WWW application written (among other things) in Java and running 
under Tomcat or EAS Server.

We have automated tests of the application written in Java too.

Now we want to be sure at the end of each test that there isn't any non-
released instance of the class XYZ in the application's memory. So, we’d like 
to call (at the end of each test) Java code which make a memory snapshot of the 
application and check existence of any non-released XYZ instance in it.

We have a similar plan with instances of the class OPQ, we just want to be 
sure, that there is exactly one OPQ's instance at the end of each test.

So, Java API would be very useful for us.

Note that Profiling Points feature is available in devbuilds of Profiler 6.0, 
which are at the time replacement for profiling API.
