Hi all Ranchers,
I was taking some garbage tests and come up with questions involving the terms "Mark-sweep garbage collection...",
"weak reference", "phantom reference", "strong reference", "memory-sensitive caching algorithms" vs vs ....
I guess these subjects are not asked in the real exam but anyway i wanna get satisfied and sure that it'll be so by your comments....
Thanx 2 all in advance....

Sezer,
no those topics do not belong to the exam but it is good to know them. You may want to read the following article http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/ALT/RefObj
