The Status Memory Monitor OpenTool is an add-on module for the Borland JBuilder IDE, which offers:

- the continiously dynamic inspection of the JBuilder IDE's memory consumption
- the automatic and forced execution of garbage collection for the JBuilder IDE
- the popup of a setable warn memory indication message for the JBuilder IDE
- the individual settup of the Memory Monitors sampling rate
- the logging of the actually used heap Memory to the JBuilder message view or standard output
- to startup automatically when JBuilder launches
- to customize it's options and used colors

This Status Memory Monitor offers just one build in method show up representation, namely, as it's name implies, a status view Memory Monitor. It is a decoupled portion from the bigger JB Memory Monitor. NOTE: that it is *not recommended* to use both, this Status Memory Monitor and the JB Memory Monitor, together at the same. You should just install and use just one of them.

You can customize some of the Status Memory Monitor settings under the JBuilder Tools|Preferences... Memory Monitor option pane.


In order to install the standalone Status Memory Monitor, first delete any previous versions of it and the JB Memory Monitor from your /lib/ext directory and possibly also delete any previous files from your %USERPROFILE%\.jbuilder10\ directory. Under Windows you can delete any previous Memory Monitor version properties file this way from a DOS shell:

del "%USERPROFILE%\.jbuilder10\stmemmon.*"
del "%USERPROFILE%\.jbuilder10\memmon.*"

Alternatively you can also use the distributions supplied deloldprops_jb10.bat file for this task.

Now to install this distribution's Status Memory Monitor, copy it's JAR file into the OpenTools related directory under your JBuilder installation directory.

In the following table, refers to the root directory of the JBuilder installation.

File to copy | Target directory
stmemmon.jar | /lib/ext

After copying the Status Memory Monitor jar file to it's location, you must restart JBuilder! Now there are several ways available to start the Status Memory Monitor:

- you can press the icon button from the far right side of the JBuilder toolbar.

- instead you can also select the Tools|Status Memory Monitor menu entry to start the memory monitor.

- and finally, you can access the Status Memory Monitor also from the project views top node context menu.

All of the above shown invocation methods should just start one and the same Status Memory Monitor view.

NOTES: the above mentioned Status Memory Monitor start up button and menu entries work all like toggles. So when you dismiss the Status Memory Monitor via one of these, the Status Memory Monitor objects will be completely removed from the status view and and it's views too. This will free up most of the memory the Status Memory Monitor itself has occupied inside JBuilder. - However, the consequences are a much slower restart of the Status Memory Monitor via the startup button or menu entries, since all related Status Memory Monitor objects have to be loaded/created again from scratch.

Note further, that this Status Memory Monitor supports a activate automatically when JBuilder launches check box option under it's Tools|IDE Options... properties page (this feature is disabled as default), which frees you from starting it up always manually when JBuilder launches.


To uninstall the Status Memory Monitor just delete it's JAR file from your JBuilder OpenTools installation directory. Then restart JBuilder.


The Status Memory Monitor documentation is available from the JBuilder Tools|Preferences... properties page, by pressing the Help button on the Memory Monitor pane. To read the documentation without running JBuilder, you may extract the documentation from inside of the archive file, which is included in this distribution. When you have done this, open the file stmemmon.html from inside the doc directory by using your favorite web browser.


The Status Memory Monitor OpenTool has been tested with versions of JBuilder 10 Enterprise and the JDK 1.4 running under Windows 2000 SP4. This version might not work with earlier JBuilder versions.
