Hi all,

I apologise if this is not the right ML for it but  I couldn’t find exactly 
what I was looking for when Googling the problem. I am a bit new to the JDI 

I would like to inspect the stack-frame of a specific  thread, I came across 
the StackFrame/ThreadReference classes but I couldn’t find a way examples where 
their usage is shown
without connecting to the VM somehow, like a debugger would do.

Is it possible to

inspect a thread’s stack “locally”  ? In my mind I could be able to have a 
function such as :

static void hook(Thread thread) {

thread.wait() // stop that thread

// inspect the frames of that thread doing any needed business with them

I’d need this for diagnostic purposes of my application.
