Emacs minor mode to monitor and manage your (local) JVMs.


It's available on Melpa:

M-x package-install jvm-mode


jvm-mode is a global minor mode. It requires a JDK installed on the local system, with jps in the path.

Turn on/off jvm-mode;


jvm-mode adds a string to the mode-line with the format jvm[NNN], where NNN is the number of running JVMs. This count is updated periodically.

You can kill jvms with the interactive function kill-jvms. All jvms with the matching main class will be sent a terminate signal.


  • 'list-jvms' command that opens a buffer with kill key bindings
  • handle jvm from other JDKs, interact with startup controlled services
