The experimental plug-ins for Java Mission Control are a set of plug-ins designed to either extend Java Mission Control in various ways or assist in developing such extensions. An experimental plug-in can be one of the following:

  • A technology preview that may later be incorporated into the main distribution, depending on the feedback.

  • A plug-in extending Java Mission Control with functionality that is not directly related to Java SE, for example, the WebLogic Server plug-in for Java Flight Recorder.


These plug-ins are currently not supported and are provided only for evaluation purposes. The experimental plug-ins are not included in the Java Mission Control product distribution.

You can download and install the experimental plug-ins from the Experimental Update Site using the Java Mission Control client. To install a plug-in:

  1. Open the Help menu and select Install New Software.

  2. Select the plug-ins that you want to install and follow the installation wizard.


To use the installed plug-in, restart Java Mission Control.
