I need a free working profiler/ide combination, but I'm having no luck. At some point I had Eclipse Profiler working with eclipse (and the eclipse version supported 1.5), but a recent change (in eclipse) ruined it.

If someone has this plugin set up, and with java 1.5, could you tell me what version of both products you're using? If not, suggestions for alternatives are very welcome.

We are using JProfiler, and it's quite good. It's not free, though.

Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

I suggest you using IBM WSAD Profiler. I've used this for a couple projects to find bottlenecks and it's really wonderful tool.

Unfortunately, I'd rather not have to pay for the profiler. It doesn't need to work with any sort of servlet container, I just need to optimize a few major components that can be started from a main method.

There is a Free JProbe Profiler.

I didn't look into IDE integration.
