This document explains how to create a Java stack trace and how to analyze generated report using 3rd party tools. It is intended for experienced e-Business Suite DBAs.

A Java stack trace is a user-friendly snapshot of the threads and monitors in a Java1 Virtual Machine (JVM). Depending on the load of the system, a stack trace can range from fifty lines to thousands of lines of diagnostics.

Java stack trace is used when troubleshooting spinning/hanging Java processes. It shows whether there are blocking threads or not.

Java stack trace will not show how memory is distributed within JVM, therefore they should not be used in troubleshooting java OutOfMemory errors. Refer to the <Note 835909.1> for heap dumps.
