Description
There's currently no way to access a method's return value in method exit events (or at any other time for that matter). This feature is useful for tracing method calls with their parameters and return values.

EVALUATION

Add as Tiger Feature
###@###.### 2003-09-16
This has been approved by CCC.
This value is available in JVMTI.  We have to add a new eventKind
to JDWP, eg, METHOD_EXIT_WITH_RETURN_VALUE, and a new method to JDI MethodExitEvent:
     Value returnValue();


###@###.### 2003-11-18
Decomitting from Tiger.  Not enough time.
