Does garbage collection guarantee that a program will not run out of memory?..

Answer / ranganathkini

Garbage Collection of Java is an automatic mechanism that
safeguards against memory leaks and handles memory
allocation and de-allocation.

The GC makes all possible attempts to free memory and make
it available for fresh allocations. But at certain times it
cannot. At those times, it throws an OutOfMemoryError.

So to conclude, GC handles most of the memory management and
makes all possible attempts to make memory availabe for the
application but it does not gurantee that it will be able to
provide it.
