arguments. The argument map associates argument name strings to instances of
Connector.Argument. The default argument map for a connector can be obtained through
Connector.defaultArguments(). Argument map values can be changed, but map entries should not be added or deleted.
A target VM launched by a launching connector is not
guaranteed to be stable until after the

Important note: If a target VM is launched through this
funcctions, its output and error streams must be read as it
executes. These streams are available through the
Process object returned by
VirtualMachine.process(). If the streams are not periodically
read, the target VM will stop executing when the buffers for these
streams are filled.

VirtualMachinemirror of the target VM.
IOException- when unable to launch. Specific exceptions are dependent on the Connector implementation in use.
IllegalConnectorArgumentsException- when one of the connector arguments is invalid.
VMStartException- when the VM was successfully launched, but terminated with an error before a connection could be established.
