SAMPLE CODE:

i read the only 1 object is eligible for GC after the method returns ... but i have a doubt regarding this
From what i understand, an object that is passed as a parameter of a method has scope within the braces of the method ... if this is true then shouldn't 'obj' also be eligible for GC after the method returns?

ooops !!!
i think i just got all muddled up there ... i understand now ... it is because of the reference to the object from outside the method right?

Hey Samith -
Looking at your code I'm wondering...
are we talking about a method or a constructor?
