citing from here:
"BTrace currently does not support tracing native methods. But, it may
be feasible to support tracing native methods using native method
prefixing support of java.lang.instrument.
I have never tried this myself, but see
on how you should probably be able to work around this by using byte
code instrumentation and then have BTrace apply your probe into the
intern() method of your instrumentation wrapper class...
HTH & best regards,
