Hi Everyone,

Can anyone explain the output I'm getting from the code below?
Most often, I'm getting nothing (GC doesn't run) or:
finalize
super intfinalize
superfinalize

But, once in a while, the output is:
finalize
super intfinalize

I understand the first two (all or none), but why would only two of the three statements be output?

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi,

I ran the code 10 or 20 times in Eclipse - once or twice, only two of the statements were output.

If the program terminates between "super intfinalize" and "superfinalize" you get only 2 lines of output

Finalization runs in daemon thread so ongoing finalization does not prevent termination of JVM.

Good Day,

I ran it for about 40 times with jdk1.7 and it printed nothing.

Regards,
Dan
 
I've read about this kind of thing at the checkout counter. That's where I met this tiny ad:
