Hello Faizan --

GC code lives under src/share/vm/{memory,gc_interface,gc_implementation}.
A white paper gives an overview as of a couple of years ago:-

   http://java.sun.com/j2se/reference/whitepapers/memorymanagement_whitepaper.pdf

It's also referenced from the overview available here:-

   http://openjdk.java.net/groups/hotspot/docs/StorageManagement.html

all the best.
