SPDisposeCheck is a tool that analyzes and check the objects that not released by CLR garbage collection and must be released by calling the Dispose() methods in custom SharePoint solution that uses a SharePoint object model.

I recommend to automatically dispose of SharePoint objects that implement the IDisposable interface by performing a C# using statement.

String str;

using(SPSite oSPsite = new SPSite("http://server"))
  using(SPWeb oSPWeb = oSPSite.OpenWeb())
       str = oSPWeb.Title;
       str = oSPWeb.Url;

Enjoy 🙂
