Groovy Dynamic Memory Allocation ----- Deallocation

JIRA v5.2.2 Standalone

Question: With Groovy, is there a need to deallocate or free-up any dynamically allocated multi-dimensional arrays or collections? If so, can you provide any guidance? Please accept my apology if this is a question that reveals my inexperience.

Thanks for your consideration.

As Jozef said it's not anything you need to worry about, unless you have memory problems. You'd have to try quite hard to prevent stuff getting garbage collected.

Hi Jamie --- thanks so much for this! Have a great week!

I would say it is the same as in Java. See also this article about GroovyShell.

If your scripts are run in context of Scriptrunner, they are executed using eval() function and therefore only bindings variables would survive the single execution.

Jozef, thank you so much for this guidance -- and the links are exactly what I need. You read my intentions well (Scriptrunner context). Thanks again
