Attach API

Cool. The access jconsole has to a JVM is about to be available for other apps. One obvious question is when will script tools like beanshell / groovy / grash provide an agent to run around inside your apps. Of course, since the jconsole app source is probably available, you could just put an extra tab on it for a script console.

An obvious question is, why isn't this a standard API to the JVM? Many companies run multiple VMs (ie different vendors) it would be great to have these tools for any VM.

Comments:
There's a provider interface (http://download.java.net/jdk6/docs/guide/attach/spec/com/sun/tools/attach/spi/AttachProvider.html) so you can develop and deploy AttachProvide implementations that can attach to other VM implementations.
