      Description

      It's great that the JDK bundles VisualVM and it is great that the jconsole and
      MBeans functionality are plug-ins and thus separately updatable, but the current
      version should be bundled with the JDK. Leaving these plug-ins unbundled leaves
      users with the impression that VisualVM does not provide JMX coverage/functionality.

        MBeans browser is not the only way how you can use JMX. VisualVM displays information gathered over
        JMX even if you do not have jconsole and MBeans plugins installed.

        That's good to know, but there's no other way of accessing all MBeans without
        the MBeans plug-in (or a custom plug-in), right? This capability is critical,
        especially when one has lots of custom MBeans (as we do).

        The JConsole plug-in is a bit less critical to bundle as one has to configure
        jconsole plug-ins before this becomes relevant.
