Great tools for resolving Java deadlock on Eclipse

We're in the midst of testing OEPE right now.

I encountered a deadlock issue with creating a lot of JSPs in a dynamic web project.

To diagnose the problem further I used 3 tools:

1) JRockit mission control
2) Sun's jstack.exe in the bin directory
3) Microsoft's process explorer

JRockit mission control comes with Jrockit in it's own directory under root. You launch it and can then attach it to a JRockit launched Eclipse instance with -Xmanagement

Jstack.exe is in the bin directory for Sun JDK 1.6. You can launch it on the command line by giving it the process ID of the Eclipse instance; easily gotten with process explorer.

Cool stuff.

Went for a mid-day run with colleagues Chris and Carlin from 4001 Discovery Drive.

There are so many great runs from the corner of Colorado and Foothills because there's an abundance of multi-use paths close-by including the Boulder Creek Bike Path.

The weather was great and I was even able to track the run using May My Run software on my IPhone. It's a great piece of software and I can review my run almost immediately after the run.
