    Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :

      JVM
      ---
      * Release memory pages back to OS by default when free memory crosses a threshold.


      JUSTIFICATION :
      This is one of many RFEs produced from a community discussion at
      http://forums.java.net/jive/thread.jspa?threadID=143. Further
      justification could typically be found at the given link.

      Given liberal memory limitations, it should be reasonable to have the JVM release memory back to the OS.

      I understand that there are settings to already do this but that it does not always occur dependant on the type of GC. These settings should be explicitly stated.
