How to Capture a Webcenter Content Java Stack Dump on the Windows Platform (Doc ID 1544915.1)

Last updated on MAY 24, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 10.1.3.5.0 to 11.1.1.7.0 [Release 10gR3 to 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This has been tested on Webcenter Content Server 10g and 11g.
Recently tested using JDK 1.6

Goal

This Note demonstrates how the utility thdump.exe, can be used to capture a Java JVM stack dump from the Webcenter Content java process on Microsoft Windows.

The utility is similar in purpose to the using the "kill" command on a UNIX system to send a SIGQUIT signal (3) to the running JVM and works in the same way as pressing CTRL-BREAK in a command prompt window where a java program is running the foreground.

Please see original Note on this subject here:   How to Capture a Java Stack Dump on the Windows Platform [Doc ID 437464.1]

Note: Essentially this can be used on Windows, with any running Java Process!
