Provides the API to attach to a Java<sup><font size=-2>TM</font></sup>
A tool, written in the Java Language, uses this API to attach to a target
virtual machine (VM) and load its tool agent into the target VM. For
example, a management console might have a management agent which it uses
to obtain management information from instrumented objects in a Java
virtual machine. If the management console is required to manage
an application that is running in a virtual machine that does not include
the management agent, then this API can be used to attach to the target
VM and load the agent.
