Hi Partners,

If I run Roberto Perillo Test case more than say 70 times as shown below.

I get the below error message.. Is this normal, I am doing calls to System.gc() and I know we cannot control this, I have tried to null all variables inside of my functions. Is this happening due to the share number of threads being created? I am working on a Dell Inspiron, XP3, 1GB Memory.

Exception in thread "Thread-264" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
at suncertify.db.RoomFileAccess.updateRoomList(
at suncertify.db.RoomFileAccess.deleteRecord(
at suncertify.db.Data.deleteRecord(
at suncertify.db.DataClassTest$
BUILD STOPPED (total time: 1 minute 2 seconds)

Thanks Jason

Look for solutions not problems!

If your program throws such an exception, is it always originating in the same method (updateRoomList) or is it just randomly.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
