How Garbage Collection works in Java ?
I have read many articles on Garbage Collection in Java, some of them are too complex to understand and some of them donít contain enough information required to understand . garbage collection in Java. Then I decided to write my own experience as an article or you call tutorial about How Garbage Collection works in Java or what is Garbage collection in Java in simple word which would be easy to understand and have sufficient information to understand how garbage collection works in Java.

IBM Monitoring & Diagnostic Tools for Java
IBM Monitoring & Diagnostic Tools for Java
The IBM Monitoring and Diagnostic Tools for Java - the Health Center provides live information and recommendations about classes being loaded, the virtual machine environment, garbage collection, locking, and profiling. This article introduces you to the Health Center and shows an example of how it can be used to check the impact of a source code change in a Web application.

Diagnostic Tool for Java Garbage Collector 1.3
Diagnostic Tool for Java Garbage Collector 1.3
Discover a diagnostic tool for optimizing parameters affecting the garbage collector when using the Java Virtual Machine. Applications running under Java use a heap for garbage collection, which serves as a storage manager in development kits and run-time environments.

Mash that trash -- Incremental compaction in the IBM JDK Garbage Collector
Mash that trash -- Incremental compaction in the IBM JDK Garbage Collector
This article discusses incremental compaction, a new feature in the memory management component of IBM JDK 1.4.0. Incremental compaction is a way of spreading compaction work across different garbage collection cycles, thereby reducing pause times. The authors discuss the need for incremental compaction, the compaction phases at a high level, and some runtime parameters. They also explain how to interpret changes in the verbosegc output.
