Hi
please go thru the following code.

class Eco {
Eco e;
public static void main(String[] args) {
Eco e1 = new Eco();
Eco e2 = new Eco();
Eco e3 = new Eco();
e3.e = e2;
System.out.println(""+e3.e);
e1.e = e3;
System.out.println(""+e1.e);
e2 = null;
System.out.println(""+e2);
e3 = null;
System.out.println(""+e3);
e2.e = e1;//here it will gives the NullPointerException
//Because you are nulling the reference variable e2 at line11.

System.out.println(""+e2.e);
e1 = null;
} }
