Hi,

what does it mean if references to an Object are hold by
java.lang.ref.Finalizer. This is the only path to a GC root - why isn't
that instance removed?

Thanks,
Stefan.

Hi Stefan,

if an object is held only via the "reference" field of the Finalizer, it could mean that the Finalizer has not yet run - the object is still in the queue to be finalized. Or the object has not yet been added into the finalizer queue.

Cheers,

Andreas.
