Following is an example taken from /

    // Get the DWARF operations that describe the variable's location 
from its DIE
    List ops = variableDie.getFormData(frame.getAdjustedAddress());
    // Create a LocationExpression from it
    LocationExpression locationExpression = new 
LocationExpression(frame, variableDie, ops);
    // Decode the expression to get the location and create a 
PieceLocation from it
    PieceLocation pieceLocation = new 

pieceLocation will now contain the (list of) location(s). You can print 
it by using its toPrint function, manipulate
its bytes, etc. [Refer / /and / (or ping 
me :-) ) for its other functions]
