    Default Does garbage collection occurs in PERM Area of Java Heap ?

    Hi Guys,

    I am a relative new member in this form , My name is Javin Paul and I am Java programmer. I have question related to garbage collection in Java

    Does garbage collection occurs in PERM Area of Java Heap ?

    As per my knowledge PERM area is used to store meta data about classes, methods , variable etc also String Pool created in PERM area of heap so I beleive garbage collection does not occur in this place but just wanted to know what do you guys think of it ?

    Thanks
    Javin
