Why do we have the gc() method in both the System class and the Runtime class. Is there any specific reason ?

As the documentation states, System.gc() basically calls the Runtime method. I'd assume convenience.

subject: gc() method
finalize access specifiers protected/private/public
why two gc() method ?
