Subject Re: Can you explicitly free an object without calling the GC?
Date Sun, 06 Apr 2008 20:12:40 GMT
Senaka,
This is a good question.

Harmony GC interface does not allow freeing objects. From the other
side if JIT is able to determine boundaries of the object life cycle
and bound them to a stack, it allocates objects on the stack, so they
are freed automatically. This is called escape analysis and should be
out of scope for now.

Thanks.
