Garbage Collection is still important

I think in J2EE, it is easy to get away from the basics of solid Java programming, assuming that the container will take care of the hard stuff for us. Understanding how GC works, however, can be crucial for J2EE applications, expecially high volume or long running runs. I don't know about you, but I might need to brush up on this stuff.

Simon Roberts delivered a great primer on the topic to the DJUG Architecture SIG last week, we'll try to get slides up on the archive soon.
