<h1>Eclipse 3.3 Java Debug Build Notes&nbsp;</h1>
<h2>Summary of API changes in 3.3</h2>
<li>added <code>IJavaThread.isDaemon()</code></li>
<li>added <code>IJavaThread.getFrameCount()</code></li>
<li>added <code>IJavaDebugTarget.supportsInstanceRetreival()</code></li>
<li>added <code>IJavaReferenceType.getInstances(int max)</code></li>
<li>added <code>IJavaObject.getReferringObjects(int max)</code></li>
<li>added <code>IJavaDebugUIConstants.PREF_ALLINSTANCES_MAX_COUNT</code> and
<li>added support for access rules to be defined for libraries in an execution
<li>An execution environment can define an access rule participant to contribute
rules specific to an environment (see the new attribute <code>ruleParticipant</code>
on the <code>environment</code> element of the <code>executionEnvironments</code>
extension point).</li>
<li>Additionally an access rule participant can be contributed in isolation
to participate in access rule creation for any execution environment (see
the <code>ruleParticipant </code>element of the <code>executionEnvironments</code>
extension point). The rule participant can create rules selectively based
on project, JRE, and system libraries.</li>
<li>See the new interface <code>IAccessRuleParticipant</code> and the new
method <code>IExecutionEnvironment.getAccessRules(...)</code>.</li>
