Today Sun Microsytems announced the start of the Java VisualVM(tm) Blogging Contest. Check out this free tool, blog about it and you could win $500! Designed for both production and development time use, Java VisualVM enhances the capability of monitoring and performance analysis for the Java SE platform.
Java VisualVM is a FREE visual tool integrating several commandline JDK tools and lightweight profiling capabilities.

We are so sure you will love this little-known tool that we want you to try it out and blog about it. Simply use Java VisualVM, blog about it, and you could win a $500 Amex gift certificate!
