Subject RE: [OT] how to calculate the size of an object
Date Thu, 08 Jul 2004 16:24:24 GMT
Only problem is, that this is the size of the object with a new object, rather then being something
that could be done dynamically.  Not to mention
that if this is done at run time ( which is what the original poster wants I believe) then
you can be completely screwed by a GC run, and end up 
with a negative number.

[OT] how to calculate the size of an object



I use SAX parser to load an LDIF file into memory. Whatsoever data i 
read, i fill into an object.

I need to know *the size of LDIFData object* at runtime. How to do that?

Well the class structure is something like this

public class LDIFData{
                ArrayList cards; // collection of Card
                String filename;
                long lastLoadedTime;

public class Card{
                String name;
                String email
                String mobile;
