I'm not quite sure what this has to do with Java, but the answer is: as long as the document is open - probably.

I say 'probably' because it's quite possible that any of the applications you mention may be able to 'page' portions of their documents, in the same way that an OS does with infrequently used memory.

I would say that CPU memory is unpredictable, and you cannot tell whether it changes depending on size of documents. Similarly there are complicated algorithms about paging as already mentioned, so whether adding data to a document like that changes the proportion of RAM in use is again unpredictable. It is possible that increasing the size of the active document causes an inactive document to be paged, in which case adding those data causes a reduction in used RAM.

I think you need to work out a definitive answer, and I think it looks like this:-



“Don’t know.”
