ok, so I'm running a program with a LOT of data, which I am told I should expect to use a LOT of memory. And while running the program, my computer shuts down after maybe 15 minutes of running. I didn't get any exception or anything (that I was told about), my computer just turned off. When I started it back up, Windows just acted like nothing happened. No "unsual shut down" messages or anything.
If it was a memory problem, isn't Java locked down to a limited amount of allocated memory? So if it was using just way too much memory, the JVM should have shut down before my computer, right?
I'm a bit lost here. Not sure what to make of it.
