I need some help with analysing a problem. I have a list of objects that are retreived as part of search results in my webapp page.
From the list of these objects, one object is selected and the next screen is populated with the data from this object.
List<MyCustomObject> objects = // data from DB // on user select MyCustomObject selectedObj = objects.get(i); return selectedObj;
Since there is a reference to one of the objects in the list, will the list be eligible for garbage collection in this case ?
I am running the performance and memory analyzer tool on eclipse and cant seem to get this list of objects off my webapp memory. It always stays in memory though its not a global variable.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
EDIT : Its been some time since i wrote a thread, sorry i am unable to add that snippet as a code.
