Hi Guys,

I am a relative new member in this forum , My name is Javin Paul and I am Java programmer. I have question related to garbage collection in Java

Does garbage collection occurs in PERM Area of Java Heap ?

As per my knowledge PERM area is used to store meta data about classes, methods , variable etc also String Pool created in PERM area of heap so I believe garbage collection does not occur in this place but just wanted to know what do you guys think of it ?

Thanks
Javin

Thought of sharing this chapter from Inside JVM book- Garbage Collection. Might be an useful read.
