Hi,

just wanted to let you know about the blog I just posted:

Immortal Objects - Or: How to Find Memory Leaks

http://dev.eclipse.org/blogs/memoryanalyzer/2008/04/21/immor tal-objects-or-how-to-find-memory-leaks/


While searching for a good blog topic, I came across a Bugzilla entry
detailing a leak in WorkbenchWindow. I thought, why not give it a try? It
turned out to be a one line fix (a missing dispose()). Then I retraced
every step I did, took a couple of screenshots and jotted down a couple of
lines to explain what I did.

Let me know what you think!


Andreas.

Very nice article! That should definitely attract some people to the
Memory Analyzer, as it deserves :)

By the way, what does the "T" stand for in "MAT"?

T as in Tool


As always, giving the thing a name is not easy. And the class name
org.eclipse.memoryanalyzer would have been too long even with code
completion. :-/
