Hi Friends,
I'm trouble with finalize and garbage collection.
when an object is eligible for garbage collection,does the finalize() method get called immediately on that object?

Finalize method can be used before garbage collector claims the memory used by the object.It can't be guaranteed when garbage collector will be invoked so you should not release any critical memory resources into this method.For that you can use the finally method with try catch block.

Its like a last wish notice before GC hangs the object to death...
