This plugin is used to extend the JConsole that is bundled as part of the 1.5 JDK
The latest OpenJPA Tools JAR file can be download from the SNAPSHOT Repository
or can be built from the source code in svn by using Maven 2.2.1 and Java SE 6.
Start an OpenJPA application with the following configuration properties
<property name="openjpa.DataCache" value="true"/>
<property name="openjpa.Instrumentation" value="jmx(Instrument='DataCache')"/>
Launch JConsole and provide the openjpa-tools.jar via the -pluginpath
> [java_home]\bin\jconsole -pluginpath [path_to_openjpa-tools.jar]
Select the PID which corresponds to your application.
If all goes well, at this point you should see a tab labeled DataCache-[pu_name]-[n]
