Interactive Diagnostic Data Explorer (IDDE) is the strategic tool for allowing interactive analysis of JVM problems using post mortem artifacts such as core files or javacores. It is a lightweight tool which helps you quickly get information from the artifact you are investigating where you are not sure what the problem is and you want avoid launching resource intensive analysis.
The current version is available via IBM Support Assistant (ISA) 4 and supports the following features
- Supports system cores, IBM javacores and PHD files.
- Full content assist for available commands
- Syntax highlighting
- Investigation log which mixes free text with live session data
- Multiple JVM support

IBM Extensions for Memory Analyzer (IEMA) Plugins
IDDE now has limited support for WebSphere Application Server IEMA plugins directly within IDDE and is available by installing the IBM Monitoring and Diagnostic Tools for Java - Interactive Diagnostic Data Explorer Bridge for Memory Analyzer [Tech Preview] feature.
The limitations are summarized as
