object is eligible for gc when all it's references are set to null.
for e.g.

String str = new String("hi");//1
String str1= str;//2
str=null;//3
:
://some processing with str1
:
:
str1=null;//4

Here we have created a new object str which contains a string "hi"
now we r assigning that to str1. so now there r 2 references to string "hi".
So unless and until u are not making both str and str1 to null that object is not eligible for garbage collection.

hmm.. not necessarily. Objects are eligible for garbage collector when there's no live thread that can reach that object.
