A while back ( October last year ) I answered this question:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3094925/trying-to-solve-15-puzzle-outofmemoryerror/3095101#3095101

Explaining how to use Java's string.intern() and the VisualVM profiler, added screenshots posted some sample code and in general putting a good effort on it.

I think it's a good answer ( and have +20 votes so at least 20 people thought the same ) even though the question was not very clear and was first closed and then deleted.

Today, I got a similar question, about how to reduce memory footprint and I this answer came to my mind, but since it is marked as deleted, I can't reference it ( and also so, it took me a while to find it my self).

I have voted already to undelete it, can I have two more +10k rep users to vote to undelete it, so I use as a reference Hey look here and see if it works for you

I can't comment on the subject matter, but it's got pictures and 30 upvotes! Blindly casting reopen vote. :) –  Pëkka Feb 28 '11 at 16:47
    
:P Thank you Pekka, yes, the question it self was not very clear, so, I think we can keep it closed. –  OscarRyz Feb 28 '11 at 16:49

Heh, and it's both closed and protected. (I know, I know, in case it gets reopened... it's still funny.) –  Pops Feb 28 '11 at 17:13
    
Yeap, that was me ( the protected ) I know it's unneeded but perhaps state my intention of not reopen it :P - should we create a meta for "avoid protect when closed?" - –  OscarRyz Feb 28 '11 at 17:20
    
BTW, this is the forum where I'm referencing this answer ( javamexico.org in spanish ) javamexico.org/foros/java_standard_edition/… –  OscarRyz Feb 28 '11 at 17:21
