Package net.rim.device.api.lowmemory Description

Low Memory Classes and Definitions.

The LowMemory package maintains memory resources on the device when the device becomes over-taxed and runs low on memory. This can occur when the device becomes overloaded with personal information management (PIM) items, old messages or during memory intensive operations. When the device becomes low on memory, the LowMemoryManager frees up memory resources by prioritizing objects in memory, and marking objects it deems less critical for deletion by the VM. Old mail messages, and calendar entries are typically deleted first.

The LowMemoryListener class receives and reacts to LowMemoryManager events, while the LowMemoryFailedManager class reports LowMemoryManager failures.
