Multimedia applications are supported by several tasks, some of them being response time limited, while others being high performance oriented, we must consider the realtime characteristics of our collector. In order to adapt the Java memory model to an embedded system (e.g. wireless PDA) executing multimedia applications. We propose to distribute the memory heap among the different applications in the system. Since high priority real-time tasks cannot tolerate unbounded garbage collection pauses, some effects that the garbage collection introduces in the application, such as overhead and latency, has been studied; as well as the way to adapt the reclamation rate to the application needs.
