According to "Just Java " Weak refrences allow a program to have a refrence to an object that does not prevent the object for being reclaimed by the garbage Collector..???Can some one explain what are the "Weak Refrences"???

Reference Objects allow a program to interact with "garbage collector" in a limited way.
Probably, this will not be on SCJP exam. However,
if you are curious about this interesting topic, please
read this article on the JavaSoft Web Site
Reference Objects and Garbage Collection
