Why Do We Use finalize Method in Java ?

Java provides finalize() method to perform any cleanup before Garbage Collection. This method is in Object class, and it is invoked by JVM internally. Developers are free to implement this method for any custom cleanup in case of Garbage Collection.

If an Object is not Garbage Collected, then this method may not be called.

This method is never invoked more than once by JVM.
