Corretto 8, tools.jar (classpath)

Is there any point in getting tools.jar into the classpath for Corretto 8 installations w/AppDs agent?

 

In our AWS Beanstalk automation for instances using OpenJDK Java 1.8, we had a bit of machinery extending classpath to include the JDK's tools.jar (with the understanding that that was required for some of AppD's more advanced features).

 

But https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO45/App+Server+Agents+Supported+Environments#AppServerAgentsS...

says that at least some advanced features are not available with Corretto 8/11.

 

So does AppD not utilize Corretto 8 JDK's tools.jar?  If so, how, and for what?

Or is it of no use there now, and we can stop jumping through classpath hoops?

 

Thanks for any insights.
