Java theory and practice: Garbage collection and performance
By Brian Goetz - 2004-03-03 Page:  1 2 3 4 5 6

Summary and Resources

Garbage collection has come a long way in the last several years. Modern JVMs offer fast allocation and do their job fairly well on their own, with shorter garbage collection pauses than in previous JVMs. Tricks such as object pooling or explicit nulling, which were once considered sensible techniques for improving performance, are no longer necessary or helpful (and may even be harmful) as the cost of allocation and garbage collection has been reduced considerably.
