I'm trying to write a utility program to display the contents of a data queue in a JTextPane but I don't want to destroy the contents of the queue.

there is a peek() method on the dataqueue object, but this only looks at the first entry on the queue

does anyone know a way around this?

JVM question

Please tell me what the difference between "System.gc()" and "Runtime.getRuntime().gc()".
JDK API document says that "System.gc() call Runtime.getRuntime().gc()". So there is no difference. But the test result of Memory.java as following(windows2000):
7 bytes used per object on average
8 bytes used per object on average

who can tell me why?

public class Memory {

private final static int _SIZE = 500;

public static void main( String [] args ) throws Exception {

Object[] array = new Object[_SIZE];

long start = Runtime.getRuntime().freeMemory();

for (int i = 0; i < _SIZE; i++) {
array[i] = new Object();

long end = Runtime.getRuntime().freeMemory();

long difference = ( start - end ) / _SIZE;

System.out.println( difference + " bytes used per object on average" );
