Java Memory Management

suggest change


In Java, objects are allocated in the heap, and heap memory is reclaimed by automatic garbage collection. An application program cannot explicitly delete a Java object.

The basic principles of Java garbage collection are described in the Garbage collection example. Other examples describe finalization, how to trigger the garbage collector by hand, and the problem of storage leaks.
