Java Garbage Collection

A short article about different types of garbage collectors in Java

Never know that Java could have memory leak problem before since I believed that GC will do all the trick to reclaim unreachable objects. But actually it does due to "unintentional object retention". This is a good article explaining about this problem and providing suggestions to deal with it using things like WeakHashMap (finally I understand what this class is useful for).
