I have apache tomcat 7 running on local and a web application deployed as .war file to this server. I am trying to use visual vm to profile the application but so far I am only able to profile tomcat itself.
I am able to see everything about tomcat in the interface and there are absolutely no problems. I am able to see indvidiual tomcat functions as well which are of no meaning to me.
What I want to see is the execution time of the functions of my deployed web application, in other words my own code. But I am unable to do that? Has anyone ever managed to do this profiling? Do I need to set a JMX connections or something with my deployed application? Below you can find my screen which I am able to profile tomcat functions.
