I read that the String Pool was a part of PermGen till Java 6 and later on it was moved to Heap Area. So, what was the reason for moving it to heap area? And, in which particular heap area (Eden, S0, S1, Tenured Gen), this string pool is allocated?

 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
