The question below was found in the book: SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 Study Guide (Exam 310-065). It is the first self test question of Chapter 3.

Why isn't c3 eligible for garbage collection in the following question? Doesn't it equate to null after c1.go(c2) returns?

QUESTION:- When // doStuff is reached, how many objects are eligible for GC?

You should have posted the source in a new post to your existing thread. I'll close this thread and link to it from the other one.
