Is there any official documentation for these classes?

The corresponding binary wrappers jmap and jstack seem to have manual pages, but there is no sun docs on these in the JDK. I can use them fine, since they print out the command-line options if none are supplied. I also found the source and javadoc on openjdk:

Thanks,

Here is what I am trying to do:

I would like to use jmap and jstack without installing the JDK, with only the JRE installed.
I am trying to figure out if it's OK to pull out 1 jar (tools.jar) from the JDK and
bundling it with my application.
