Of late, I see that IBM Heapdumps [ generated from a systhrow/OOME ] are very small as they do not contain Object contents.
It probably has to do with design change in Java6 SR12 or even an earlier release.
I say so because I have with me a heapdump from Java6 SR9 and I can see the contents of objects.
Can someone here help me with the answers to the following?
1) Is this a design change? If yes, from what version of JDK ? And what options do I have to add to the commandline to ensure Objects are retained?
2) If this is NOT a design change, is there something that is going wrong ?
Thanks in advance!
