Please, please use tags around your code. It makes code so much easier to read.

What "4" do you mean? Line 4?

Ha! We have a question here, not a statement.

"When is the object referenced by variable b1 eligible for garbage collection?"

You had me confused there with all this pseudo-speak.

My answer is just after the line numbered //2, there is no reference to the Byte("127") object at that point.

Am I understanding correct? The original poster thinks that Byte("127") isn't available for GC until after line 4? It seems pretty clear that after line 2 that object is available, just as Barry said.

What is the reasoning you are using that makes you think it would be line 4? Maybe I'm missing something here.

Byte Object will be eligible for GC after the execution of line 2. If you comment line b2[1] = b1; then same Byte object will be eligible for GC after the execution of line 1.
