Class InstrumentationLoadTimeWeaver

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class InstrumentationLoadTimeWeaver extends Object implements LoadTimeWeaver
LoadTimeWeaver relying on VM Instrumentation.

Start the JVM specifying the Java agent to be used — for example, as follows where spring-instrument-{version}.jar is a JAR file containing the InstrumentationSavingAgent class shipped with Spring and where {version} is the release version of the Spring Framework (e.g., 5.1.5.RELEASE).


In Eclipse, for example, add something similar to the following to the JVM arguments for the Eclipse "Run configuration":

    • getInstrumentableClassLoader

      public ClassLoader getInstrumentableClassLoader()
