Following are my queries with reference to Chapter 3 of SCJP 5

1. In the self test of Chapter 3 Question no 2
Should the answer not be 4 objects, since the line Cardboard c3 = c1.go(c2) would also set the c3 object to null.

2. Should the function rt.freeMemory() be rt.getFreeMemory()

Thanks
Deepak

On Page 234 of the book there is a typo System.out.println("y=" + i); should be System.out.println("y=" + y);

no, because c3 is just a reference variable in the stack, no object has ever been created for it to point to in the heap, hence nothing to be GCed.
 
All that thinking. Doesn't it hurt? What do you think about this tiny ad?
