im only experimenting a little with j2me. therefore ive taken the nokia 7210 emulator, which has nicely a memory usage monitor tool integrated.
so i made a little experiment, just for getting a feeling in the memory management:
i just created a very basic midlet with a canvas, doing absolute nothing and watched the memory usage:
size : 215040
used : 21456
free : 193584
then i tried to compare this result to the same midlet expect adding a class-global int-var:
used : 21500
shouldnt the default-value of the heap-used-value be only increased by the value of an int-var (4bytes) ?
another example with 2 int-vars:
used : 21528
this tiime i expected to get the difference between the default-memory usage and the one with one int-var twice ... but it isnt...
what do i get wrong ?
