The java runtime system can be accessed by the Runtime class.

The runtime information – memory availability, invoking the garbage collector is possible by using Runtime class.

Knowing the free memory space:
Runtime.freeMemory() - Returns the free memory of
Runtime.maxMemory() - Returns the memory that JVM can use at the maximum.

Invoking garbage collector:

Some other facilities that are provided by Runtime class are:
- Reading data through key board
- Using system properties and environment variables
- Running non-java programs from within a java application.
