While most bugs reveal their cause within their stack trace, Java’s OutOfMemoryError is less talkative and therefore regarded as being difficult to debug by a majority of developers. With the right techniques and tools, memory leaks in Java programs can however be tackled like any other programming error. This talks discusses how a JVM stores data, categorizes different types of memory leaks that can occur in a Java program and presents techniques for fixing such errors. Furthermore, we will have a closer look at lambda expressions and their considerable potential of introducing memory leaks when they are used incautiously.
