Description

9 years ago
See http://bugs.adobe.com/jira/browse/FB-26778 -- the profiler API currently does not expose a way for a client profiler to tell the difference between weak references and regular (non-weak) ones.  This can be very important, because when tracing the path of an object to the GC root, what you usually want to know is which paths are forcing the object to be held in memory; and weak references do not force the object to be held.
