String object : Garbage Collection

when we have :-
s1 = new String("ABCDEFG");
I understand, there are two objects being created :-
(1)"ABCDEFG" -with no reference
(2)Second object "ABCDEFG" with a reference s1.
Say if the Garbage Collector runs,then does object(1)above ("ABCDEFG"- with no reference), gets garbage collected???

The first object is in the String pool and is never garbage collected, a least for purposes of the

if you take, how many objects will be eligible for GC just after this method returns?
public void compute(Object p)
String str = "abc";
"abc" is a string literal which goes to the string pool and is not GCed.
I agree. Here's the link:
