Firefox Profiler beyond the web

Using Firefox Profiler to view Java profiling data

Like many programming communities, the Java community lacks a simple open-source profiling UI. In the quest to build such a UI, I found the Firefox Profiler to be the closest to an adaptable polyglot profiling UI. This talk presents my Java JFR Profiler plugin for IntelliJ and gives an overview of how to adapt and integrate the Firefox Profiler to use it to view profiling data from different sources, like JDK Flight Recordings.
