This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
First of all, please clarify what you mean by "static data"? The last time someone asked a question similar to this, my assumptions were wrong -- the question was about something else.
Now... assuming that this is about objects being referenced by static variables.... Objects are just objects. They can be referenced by instance variables. They can be referenced by static variables. And at the same time. And when none of those reachable variables reference the object anymore, the object will be eligible for GC.
My question if i close the session on the implementation class will this be eligible for Garbage collection
Objects are eligibile for garbage collection when the object is no longer reachable ... period.
The garbage collector doesn't have a concept of sessions or closing of them. The session object will be GC'ed when it is no longer reachable -- this means that the session factory must get rid of any references to it. And any code that has a reference to the object returned by the method must no longer reference it. Anything that is reachable, having a reference to the session object, will make the object not eligible to GC.
