This may seem like a simple question, but I can't find a solid answer! How do I view jconsole in OpenSUSE 11.1? I have an applet that I'm hosting, and I'd like to be able to debug it on-the-server. However, I have no idea of how to pull up jconsole whilst in any browser on OpenSUSE.

Launch firefox from the terminal. Jconsole output is directed to firefox's standard out.

Can you execute it directly with something like /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0.u1-sun-1.6.0.u1/bin/jconsole ?

You will need java-1_6_0-sun-devel installed.

I'm looking to use the java console in the browser, which I can't do! Argh! – Stefan Kendall Jul 25 '09 at 15:53
