This project is a loose collection of single-page self-contained JSP files that make your life easier when troubleshooting issues. Each JSP is completely self-contained - no dependency on other java classes or JSP pages. Just pick the JSP you need from and copy it over to one of your java web-applications!

These files will obviously get no love from your info-sec team! In most cases, it should be fine if you put them all under some protected URI (e.g. /admin/*) - but please exercise your judgement in how you plan on using/deploying them.

The project currently comprises of the following page(s):


This JSP assumes that you are working in a "Spring" environment - if that is not the case, please tweak the logic to lookup the data-sources. The page allows you to select the data-source you wish to run your queries against and set the maximum rows you want fetched for any query.

The sample web-app uses an embedded HSQLDB to demo the functionality. Please create a test table on the first run.

-- Sample SQLs: please execute one at a time
create table test (id integer not null, name varchar(100) not null, description varchar(200), primary key (id))
insert into test values(1, 'hello', 'world')
insert into test values(2, 'foo', 'bar')
select * from test where id <> 1

This JSP uses the Thread MX Bean to lookup the thread information. It essentially takes two thread dumps a configurable interval apart (500 ms by default) and shows you the top threads executing during this interval. The page accepts a search pattern to filter the threads as well as options to limit the number of threads and/or the depth of the stack trace that is returned.

This JSP tries to replicate some/most of the functionality provided by the MBean tab within JConsole. The current implementation offers read-only support for viewing the MBeans and their attributes. The JSP handles "array" values fairly gracefully and just uses the default "toString" conversion in most other cases.

This JSP provides a limited shell emulation support. It spawns a child process using the java Runtime.exec() call - which will execute as the user that launched the servlet container process. It reads the user-input one line at a time - NOT character by character i.e. cannot use "vi" etc. But it does allows you to browse around the filesystem, look at files, add/remove/copy/move them, start/shutdown processes etc.

This JSP tries to replicate some of the functionality provided by the Visual VM tool. The current implementation shows you the JVM startup arguments and system properties. Working on adding the charts to show the current CPU/Memory/Classes/Threads info.
