dbx Experiments That Create a Process

When dbx is used to launch a process with data collection enabled, dbx also creates the experiment directory and ensures preloading of Then dbx stops the process at a breakpoint before its first instruction, and calls an initialization routine in to start the data collection.

Java experiments can not be collected by dbx, since dbx uses a Java Virtual Machine Debug Interface (JVMDI) agent for debugging, and that agent can not coexist with the Java Virtual Machine Tools Interface (JVMTI) agent needed for data collection.
