Answer / pradeep panwar

Hi All....
yea thats true that we can't force for Garbage Collection.
We can send a request by system.gc(); at any time but its
not sure that garbage collection takes place at that time.
It depends on memory. So we cant forcr fot GC either
sending the explicit request.

Why we can not force Garbage Collection?..

Answer / mohit

Hi Friends.. System.gc()does not forcefully to gc.it request
only.it has only 10% chance to run gc.but if u use
thread.sleep(1000);it has chance 50% to run gc.but if u use
for(i=1;i<=1000;i++)
{
System.gc();
}
so it has 99% chance to run gc.because gc release the memory
only when heap is full otherwise JVM is very lasy.....
