About the garbage collector

Posted by Mukul on November 26, 2001 at 2:52 AM

When java does the garbage collection, is the memory returned back to the OS or not? I have a collection of servlets running on Jserv+Apache on Redhat Linux 6.2 using IBM Java.

What I have seen is that usage of memory keeps on creeping up. I have checked for memory leaks (properly closing the database connections etc.).

I have no clue as to what is going wrong. Please help.
