How does the garbage collector in java work?


Interview Answer

1 Answer


GC is a built in feature which allows new objects being created without worrying explicitly about memory allocation/deallocation. Garbage collection automatically reclaims memory for reuse which enables faster development by reducing/eliminating memory leaks. All of the heap memory that is not occupied by marked objects is reclaimed, unused objects supposedly cleared..
