I need complete details about Stack memory and Heap memory in Java.
That means how the instance variables or the objects are going to placed in those memories and all that.

Hi

I draw this diagram while back..about this memory allocation in JVM process..

This might give you more idea. Only thing is the Java Stack box in the diagram attached with the Java thread might be confusing as I have them attached. What I actually wanted to convey there was -- each java thread has its own stack..

Regards
Maulin
