Debug Issue

Java â?¢ Virtual Machine Tool Interface (JVM TI) breakpoints are reliable only 
when either the Parallel Scavenge garbage collector (-XX:+UseParallelGC) or the 
Parallel Compacting garbage collector (-XX:+UseParallelOldGC) is used.

When other collectors are used, breakpoints may stop functioning, and JVM TI 
object tags may become unusable after a full GC operation is performed. Java 
â?¢ Debug Interface (JDI) ThreadReferences have an embedded thread ID that 
depends on JVM TI object tags, thus the embedded thread ID may change 
unexpectedly. This may cause confusion in thread based JDI events.

Note that the Serial garbage collector (-XX:+UseSerialGC) is vulnerable to this 
problem and is selected by default on some platforms. The work around is to 
explicitly select the Parallel Scavenge collector using the command line option 

(Refer to 6862295.)
