    //~ Methods ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     * computes List of all {@link JavaClass} instances in this heap.
     * The classes are ordered according to the position in the dump file.

    List /*<JavaClass>*/ getAllClasses();

     * Speed: normal for first invocation, fast for subsequent
     * @param instance {@link Instance} whose associated {@link GCRoot} is to be returned.
     * @return {@link GCRoot} for corresponding instance or <CODE>null</CODE> if instance is not GC root.

     * returns list of all GC roots.

     * Speed: normal for first invocation, fast for subsequent
     * @return list of {@link GCRoot} instances representing all GC roots.

     * computes {@link Instance} for instanceId.
     * <br>
     * Speed: fast
     * @param instanceId unique ID of {@link Instance}
     * @return return <CODE>null</CODE> if there no {@link Instance} with instanceId, otherwise
     * corresponding {@link Instance} is returned so that
     * <CODE>heap.getInstanceByID(instanceId).getInstanceId() == instanceId</CODE>
    Instance getInstanceByID(long instanceId);

     * computes {@link JavaClass} for javaclassId.
     * <br>
     * Speed: fast
     * @param javaclassId unique ID of {@link JavaClass}
     * @return return <CODE>null</CODE> if there no java class with javaclassId, otherwise corresponding {@link JavaClass}
     * is returned so that <CODE>heap.getJavaClassByID(javaclassId).getJavaClassId() == javaclassId</CODE>
    JavaClass getJavaClassByID(long javaclassId);

     * computes {@link JavaClass} for fully qualified name.
     * <br>
     * Speed: slow
     * @param fqn fully qualified name of the java class.
     * @return return <CODE>null</CODE> if there no class with fqn name, otherwise corresponding {@link JavaClass}
     * is returned so that <CODE>heap.getJavaClassByName(fqn).getName().equals(fqn)</CODE>
    JavaClass getJavaClassByName(String fqn);

     * returns optional summary information of the heap.
     * If this information is not available in the dump,
     * some data (like number of instances) are computed
     * from the dump itself.
     * <br>
     * Speed: fast if the summary is available in dump, slow if
     * summary needs to be computed from dump.
     * @return {@link HeapSummary} of the heap
    HeapSummary getSummary();

     * Determines the system properties of the {@link Heap}. It returns {@link Properties} with the same
     * content as if {@link System#getProperties()} was invoked in JVM, where this heap dump was taken.
     * <br>
     * Speed: slow
     * @return the system properties or <CODE>null</CODE> if the system properties cannot be computed from
     * this {@link Heap}
