There should be no need calling recycle() on Domino Java objects. Java has a garbage collector and for almost every other Java API there is no need for doing this kind of memory clean-up.
The knowledge and documentation of how the use the recycle() (and if you need to use it) is poor.
It is also error-prone; accidentally calling recycle() twice on the same object may crash the Domino server!

If the Domingo project can do it, why can't IBM?

Backwards-compatibility is kept by making recycle() do nothing.

This recycle() business definitely needs to go. If I wanted to do memory management, i'd be coding in C!

I don't think J2EE devs coding for websphere have to do such a thing, so why domino developers!
