I looked at the javadoc updates to the attach API.
One thing that doesn't come across very clearly is the mapping from the
agentLibrary parameter to "agent-lib-name". I think that needs a few
words so that it's clear that it is not literally looking for
"Agent_OnAttach_agent-lib-name" but rather "Agent_OnAttach" +
<agent-lib-name> where <agent-lib-name> is the library name in the
As I recall, the JVM Tool Interface is supposed to be referred so as
