  4. Platform Project:

    • External Java Profiling agent environment variable setup has been drastically simplified

      When launching the Java profiling agent outside of the Eclipse workbench, it is now much easier to perform the necessary configuration steps. Rather than the need to set the TPTP_AC_HOME, JAVA_PROFILER_HOME, and PATH/LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variables before the launching the profiling agent, it is now only necessary to specify the path to the JVMTI profiler directory as a JVM argument (using the -agentpath arg). Consult the getting_started.html for more information. For details, see bug 226572.

    • Agent Controller Status field

      The current status of the Agent Controller is now shown in the Agent Controller preference page.
