Hello ,
I am bit confused on this logic java.lang.System and java.lang.Runtime both as the method called exit(), what is the need for this .Same as the gc() in both java.lang.System amd java.lang.Runtime.

They are same. Look at this thread for more details on gc(). The same explanation holds good for exit() also.
