Java – way to dump a stack trace without throwing an exception in java

debuggingexceptionjavaloggingstack-trace

I am thinking of creating a debug tool for my Java application.

I am wondering if it is possible to get a stack trace, just like Exception.printStackTrace() but without actually throwing an exception?

My goal is to, in any given method, dump a stack to see who the method caller is.

Best Solution

Yes, simply use

Thread.dumpStack()
