GC on exit

Posted by zol heyman on 01 Jun 1998, 12:11 PM

Are there any required actions of the jvm when the java process
is interrupted (like using ctrl-c). There doesn't seem to be.

Also, upon normal exit, finalizers may not run even if the
object is no longer referenced and even if a System.gc() is

You might want to mention the System.runFinalizersOnExit( )
method, which forces finalizers to be run upon normal system exit.
These seem to run even if the object is still referenced.
