Hello All,

I have an applet which reads logged in user name and send that to the webserver for logging purposes. Once it is done there is no need for my applet or JRE sitting in Browser's memory. Is there a way i can unload the JRE from the browser's memory. When I tried with System.exit(0), it kills the whole process itself, which kills the brower instance also.

Is there a way to unload the JRE from the browser ?

-Regards,
Ramanan.

No, that's not possible. Given that browsers are most likely written in C/C++, there is no way they could free up memory they have been allocated. Unless they run the JVM is a separate process, but I very much doubt that that's what they do. (Of course, a Java process can't free up memory it has been allocated, either.)
