I'm just wondering if display lists that i use in my program will automaticly be destroyed/removed from memory when the program closes, or if i have to use glDestroyLists? Usually they wouldn't, but because of java i'm just curious if the trash man does:P

As far as I know, you don't need to worry about this. The operating system is responsible for cleaning up after a process terminates.

the garbage collector works on java objects, not GL resources.

The OS/driver take care of that for you, AFAIK, no OpenGL app needs to destroy any sort of resources when exiting. Im not talking about just Display lists, textures, VBOs, shaders...etc
