tidbit:Java:Garbage Collection on Netbeans and Eclipse

Triggering garbage collection (GC) on java-based IDE, such as Netbeans or Eclipse can greatly improve IDE performance, especially if you do not restart IDE for a long time.

Easy way is to start JConsole (standard JDK application), connect to IDE process, select "Memory" tab and click "Perform GC"

BTW - JConsole can be started directly from Netbeans - In "Debug" menu select "Start JConsole"

Check this link for another way to trigger GC from Eclipse:
