> tilde “~” is Un*x talk for your home directory.

Maybe true, but in Windows it simply indicates that some characters in a path had to be truncated because they exceeded the MS-DOS 8.3 character limit for file and directory names. So:


Is actually an abbreviated version of:

C:\Documents and Settings\davidne\Local Settings\Temp

You’ll find that this directory does in fact exist.

Hope this helps.

I understand the DOS abbreviation and that there is a real directory but if your %TMP% folder contains tildes it just doesn’t work!

Thanks for the info. Helped me as well. Before I knew about this TMP environment variable fix only workaround was to tell jmxremote port explicitly in command line and use remote connection facility of jconsole.

* starting of java example app to examine: java -jar Notepad.jar
* starting of jconsole: jconsole localhost:8081

But after setting TMP to not tilde path everything worked fine without this remote connection workaround.
