Features and changes

Support added for the com.sun.management.ThreadMXBean interface

The OpenJ9 ThreadMXbean interface (com.ibm.lang.management.ThreadMXBean) was extending the java.lang.management.ThreadMXBean interface. With this release, the OpenJ9 ThreadMXBean interface extends the com.sun.management.ThreadMXBean interface, whereby it now contains all the methods of the java.lang.management.ThreadMXBean interface with additional methods from the com.sun.management.ThreadMXBean interface.

The OpenJ9 VM implementation does not support thread memory allocation measurement (isThreadAllocatedMemorySupported method returns false).

New message added to help find system dumps on Linux

A new message, JVMPORT049I, is added to help find the system dump files for kernel.core_pattern piped programs on Linux.
