I always missed a functionality to print thread dump of java process when the
output goes to output window. When terminal emulator was introduced I hoped that
situation improves but it does not seeem so.
When running java process from console you can press Ctrl+\ on UNIXes to print
stack traces of all threads and Ctrl+Break on windows.
So I tried it in output window and it does not seemed to work. Could this be
The reason is simple, the functionality is provided by UNIX
virtual console kernel driver which intercepts the Ctrl+\
and sends a signal to the process owning the console.
You can't send signals from Java and sending the control code for
Ctrl+\ won't help because it's stream, not VT in this case.
Anyway, ccing Trung as an experienced hacker to check my statement :-)
