Hello All,
Can i get a memory address of an object in Java?, One way is to use hashCode() method , but it may not give a memory address always (like e.g. String class has overriden hashode() method). is there any other way to get memory Address?

A question for you...

Why do you WANT the memory address? What are you planning on doing with it?

In java, memory addresses aren't very useful - there is no pointer arithmatic like in C/C++.

If you tell us your goal, maybe we can help you find a better way...

Yeah, but how did the squirrel get in there? Was it because of the tiny ad?
