Java application profiling / tracking
I have a closed source Java application for which vendor has provided APIs for customization. As I have no other documents, i rely completely on the API's javadoc.
I want to trace what methods are actually called in different classes for a particular use case. Is there any way to do that with eclipse?
No correct solution
Most profilers (like YourKit and JProfiler) support Eclipse integration.
There are some limitations, jad doesn't support java-5, and try catch functions don't always align nicely, but it can give you a good idea of whats going on inside.

You need to use eclipse TPTP (http://www.eclipse.org/tptp/)
Personally I would use VisualVM or Netbeans profiler if possible
