Eclipse Memory Analyzer 1.8.0

Release Date
  • Check and fix Memory Analyzer running under Java 9 or Java 10
  • Check and fix the loading and indexing of dumps from Java 9 and Java 10
  • Fix queries including collections and Equinox bundles for new releases of Java and Eclipse
  • Fix some reproducible bugs reported by end users 
  • No major API changes expected
  • For Java 9 and Java 10 support it may be necessary to build RCPs on Photon, so the platforms for RCP will only be the Photon RCP platforms, losing the Unix platforms and Linux PPC32
  • Java 8 will be required to run Memory Analyzer, because of the requirements of Photon RCP

The user visible messages are all put into message files, though no internationalization testing has been done this release (e.g. with dummy internationalized message files).

Target Environments

Target platforms are the Photon platforms:

  • Windows (x86)
  • Windows (x86_64)
  • Mac OSX (Mac/Cocoa/x86_64)
  • Linux (x86/GTK+)
  • Linux (x86_64/GTK+)
  • Linux (PPC64/GTK+)
  • Linux (PPC64le/GTK+)

Testing is expected to be performed running on Windows (x86_64) and Linux (x86_64) and perhaps Mac OSX

The following JVMs may be tested for acquiring dumps and for analyzing dumps, generally on the Windows platform.

IBM Java 8 SR5

Oracle JDK 8

Oracle JDK 10

OpenJDK Java 8

OpenJ9 Java 8


Java 9 and Java 10 support

Support for running Memory Analyzer using those JVMs, also acquiring and analyzing dumps from those JVMs.
This release is part of Eclipse Photon
