I ran my application with the JVM option -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError under Java 1.4.2_12.  As expected, my application eventually crashed when the OutOfMemoryError was encountered.  It created a .hprof binary file.  What do I use to analyse what's in the file?  Is the tool part of the JDK or is there something else I need?  If it is can you tell me what the name of the tool is?

Thanks in advance.
