The profiling scenario you describe (recording profiling data in between
particular method calls) is not supported by the new Java 1.5+ profiler.
The STACK_INFORMATION option is also not supported (by-the-way, it
serves a different purpose).
If you have a Java 1.4.x or 1.5 JVM, you can use the "old" Java 1.5-
profiler to profile your application. The old profiler is launched with
a different command line: -XrunpiAgent:....
Please refer to the on line documentation for the exact command line
