Restitution of ThreadLogic, a Java Thread Dump Analysis tool

I had been busy with Cloud Foundry in general and Pivotal in particular for the past 4 years and haven't had a chance to work or contribute on ThreadLogic, the Java thread dump analysis tool I created, since leaving Oracle. For folks who don't know about ThreadLogic, they can check out the older ThreadLogic related blog posts on this site.

In the meantime, projects site has been shuttered and all references to ThreadLogic has vanished including the tool and docs. Going over the various blog posts and questions, it appeared that users really miss the tool. I have decided to bring it back alive and host it on ThreadLogic Github Repo so users can continue to use it and I can continue to add advisory patterns for newer thread interactions and hope it would be of use to most Java and Enterprise users. The newly re-versioned 2.5.1 is available here.

I would sincerely appreciate it if users can share feedbacks and samples of their thread dumps either as posts or gists or via filing issues on the above Github url so we can add those patterns and advisories that would allow the tool to grow richer with more known patterns and more usage.

Just to be aware, I haven't had a chance to run a full bunch of tests against recent versions of Java (1.8 from Oracle/IBM..) thread dumps. So, there can be problems and errors in handling those thread dumps. Kindly let me know and I will try to fix those issues. Thanks for your patience and consideration.

Feedback, comments and questions on ThreadLogic welcome as always.
