This method is required when the HardGC flag is false. When the HardGC flag is false, memory used by this object is not recovered during normal JVM garbage collection. As a result, you must call the release method when you are finished with this object.
It is safe to call the release method when the HardGC flag is true; in this case no action is taken.
Note: If you want to release an array of objects, you must iterate through the array and call this method on each object.


public static void release ( );


There are no parameters for this method.


Nothing. The release method does not throw an exception if an error occurs.


public void processHashes(FormNodeP theForm) throws UWIException
  Hash theHashObject;
  /* hash object processing code not shown */
