New to TPTP but not Eclipse or Java. I'm trying to use TPTP to see the memory usage of my app, but I am not seeing all the objects.

Windows 7 (64-bit)
Eclipse 3.6.2
TPTP 4.7.1

TPTP was installed via the Eclipse "Add new Software" option.

I've spent about 2 hours looking over the TPTP site and couldn't find anything relevant.

Anyway, I made a simple Java app and profiles it. The app consists of a class which has an ArrayList memory in which I create 100 strings and place it in that ArrayList. When I run the application via the "Profile profile Test", I setup to do "Memory Analysis" and I also check the "Track object allocation sites". The program runs and look at the Memory Statistics and all it shows in the class itself, with 1 allocation and a size of 16. It doesn't show any information on the strings or the array list.

As an additional test I also allocated an ArrayList in the 'main' function and added strings to that and still they do not appear on the memory stats page.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Here is the simple program I tried:

public class ProfileTest {
	private List<String> strings;

	public ProfileTest() {
		strings = new ArrayList<String>();
	private void addStrings() {
		for (int x = 0; x < 100; x++) {
			String  str = String.format("%03d", ((int)(Math.random() * (double)x) + 1));
	 * @param args
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		ArrayList<String> foo = new ArrayList<String>();
		String f = new String("WTF!");
		ProfileTest t = new ProfileTest();

In terms of TPTP the "Memory Statistics" has one row populated which says:

Class Name             Live INstances       Active Size
ProfileTest                  1                                 16

There is also a Total Instances & total Size colums which have the same values and finally a Avg Age column which has 0 in it.

In the Allocation Details tab it shows Method as Main line no, class Profiletest and the live instances, Active size etc....

Any help appreciated
