Hotswap limitations

Before I go off and start filing bug reports against hotswap, could someone identify the set of limitations (if any ) that exist on classes that are hotswapped?

I just tried to change a class, and got an "operation not supported by VM".

Presumably that means that jdk 1.4.1_02 doesn't support hotswap? (although I thought it did).

Thanks,
Mike

Support is VM dependent. Also it depends on how you try and change a
class. For instance, changing an algorithm may be supported, but adding
or removing a method may not.

Where I've seen limitations, looking down the HotSwap console usually
tells me what I've done that's not supported.

I am occasionally getting PSI errors, (can't find method XXX). These aren't exception, but messages in the hotswap console.

In the case I reported above, I didn't get any other messages other than "VM does not support".
