Goal

This document provides a small utility, thdump.zip, and an overview of how the utility can be installed and run on a Microsoft Windows platform to request a thread dump from a running Java Virtual Machine (JVM).  Please note this would not work on some 64bits JDK.

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.
