Is there a way to manually trigger GC?

Hi Folks,

I'm finding my application does a nice job to unload data from memory, but
it takes a while for that to happen.  When the initial load of the
application occurs, the memory consumption is quite high if there is lots
of data to be loaded (1 GB+).

But after a while, the used ram drops down to under 100 mb as the
application run in the background, after which the application swaps is
only the data I am accessing.

Can I trigger that memory release manually? (Maybe its another mechanism
and not GC?!)
