I am working in a java project. I've one Jtable where the first column is a jlabel with an imageicon inside. The idea is that the user select from his computer photos and when he click Add, the images are added to the jtable. This works fine but I've the windows task monitor opened and I see the ram memory grows A LOT. From 50mb to 400mb adding 10photos of 3mb every one. I don't know how can I optimize that. I know that the jtable is rendering every time, so I have created a customized "cache" --> HashMap<String,ImageIcon> cache; Then in the getValueAt (of my Jtable's model) I've this:
What more can I do to optimize the heap and memory? thanks!!!
