<title>Show Monitors</title>
<h1> Show Monitors </h1>
<p> Select the <strong>Show Monitors </strong> command [ <img src="../../../images/org.eclipse.jdt.debug.ui/obj16/thread_and_monitor_obj.png" alt="Show Monitors"> ] to change if monitor information will be shown for suspended threads.</p>
<p>Note: The display of monitor information must be supported by the underlying VM. If using an IBM or SUN VM, any version greater than 1.4 will support monitor information.</p>
<p>Consider the following code example:</p>
 * Hello World
public class HelloWorld {

	 public static void main(String[] args) {
		Object mutex = new Object();
		synchronized (mutex) {
			System.out.println("Hello World!");
<p>If the above code snippet is run on a supporting VM with <strong>Show Monitors</strong> selected, the monitor information is represented as a 'key' and appearing before any stack frames as a child of a suspended thread. </p>
<p><img src="../../../reference/views/debug/images/ref-monitors_supported.PNG" alt="Monitor Information"></p>
<p>If however, we run the same snippet on an unsupported VM with <strong>Show Monitors</strong> selected, we are alerted that monitor information is not supported by the VM. </p>
