Java News from Thursday, December 2, 2004

Robert Oloffson has posted version 0.45 of Java Memory Profiler (JMP). JMP uses the Java Virtual Machine Profiling Interface (JVMPI) interface to track objects and method times in a JVM. It uses a GTK+ interface to display statistics. The current instance count and the total amount of memory for each class is shown as is the total time spent in each method. 0.45 shows time per call in the method window and adds tenure levels to class and instance list. JMP is written in C for Linux.

Michael B. Allen has posted jCIFS 1.1.3, a free (LGPL) SMB client library written in pure Java. It supports Unicode, named pipes, batching, multiplexing I/O of threaded callers, encrypted authentication, full transactions, domain/workgroup/host/share/file enumeration, NetBIOS sockets and name services, the smb:// URL protocol handler, RAP calls, and more. The API is similar to Version 1.1.3 is a bug fix release.
