Corretto 8, tools.jar (classpath)

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.

Thank you for posting to the community.
Advanced features such as OIT are available with Corretto 8/11 for the latest java agent.
 
If you use Corretto 8, which is prior to Java 9, object instance tracking uses tools.jar, so specifying classpath may be meaningful.
