[webkit-dev] [JSCore] No call to finalize() via Garbage Collector ?

HI Geoffrey,

Thanks a lot for your answer.
After studying the code a bit, it appears that my app is sharing a
JSGlobalContext with others. This context is, by design, never destroyed.

I read the WebKit JavaScript core documentation (
and it says a JSGlobalContext is a "standard" JSContext.

So I suppose that's why the garbage collector never runs "finalize()" ?
Anyways, thanks for the hints.
