 I don't have a G1 so I don't know if the current web browser is
Chrome, but if not, do you think Google's ever going to make a Chrome
Mobile Browser, and ship Android with it?

 As to official releases from Google, no Linux Chrome yet, though the
Apple Chrome has been rumored to be brought into beta very soon.
Could they make a mobile version that wouldn't be a memory hog?

Er... Chrome is based on WebKit too.

1. Whole lotta garbage collecting going on.... How do I find out what is being collected?



Yeah, I'm pretty bad about that one. I keep forgetting
StringBuffer/StringBuilder implement CharSequence and that lots of
things take a CharSequence directly instead of a String. For example,
you can hand a StringBuffer/StringBuilder to TextView#setText().

Also, allocate a big enough StringBuffer/StringBuilder at the outset, so
it does not have to expand its internal buffer. Its initial capacity
appears to be 16 characters, if I am reading the Android/Harmony source
correctly.

2. Whole lotta garbage collecting going on.... How do I find out what is being collected?

For the past 2 months of development, I've followed the android
performance guidelines here - 
http://developer.android.com/guide/practices/design/performance.html
- to the tee.

I always cache field lookups if the field is referenced more than once
in a method.  I was under the assumption that since the local variable
is simply a pointer to the field, that it will be on the stack and
will not need to be "cleaned" up, just like a local variable that is a
primitive.  Is this correct?

I'm very, very careful not to not allocate, that is, declare new
objects in my main loop.  With that said, I'm having a problem where
I'm having about 54200 objects GCed every 55 seconds while the game is
running.  That translates to about 1000 objects per second, or at
60FPS (which my game runs at on the emulator), about 16 short-life
objects per loop.

I have absolutely scoured my code to make sure that I'm not creating
anything.  I must be missing something though.  Here are my questions:

1)  Are local variables ever affected by GC if they never call new,
either explicitly or implicitly?
-- I'm asking if I have a field that is "private ArrayList<Dog>
dogList;" and in my method, I say "ArrayList<Dog> dogList =
this.dogList;" - that doesn't have any impact on GC, correct?  It's
just a pointer on the stack, right?
-- I understand that the word "new" doesn't need to be obvious because
really any method can create something new and return it.

2)  What about local variable arrays?  Do those go in the heap (short
lived, GC) or on the stack?

3)  I did an hprof dump but it's not giving me the information I
need.  I'd really like to profile what is being GCed so I can figure
out what's being allocated 16 times per tick.

Thanks for all your help!
