AIX has a Java 6 JVM (from IBM), but VisualVM fails miserably on it.
I understand that the profiler will not work, but this should fail to load
gracefully (just logging and outputting a message in the status bar, no dialogs)
when native libraries are not present for the OS and everything else should work.
Neither VisualVM nor its (critical) MBean and JConsole plug-ins should require a
Sun JVM. I would like to use VisualVM as an extensible framework for management
and monitoring applications, but I must support platforms (HPUX and AIX) where
there simply are no Sun JVMs available. [Alternatively if Sun would make JVMs
available for these platforms that would be even better ]
