Hi, When Iam disposing an Internal Frame,do all the refernces pointing to its object be destroyed

I mean , Iam creating an object of one class and in this class(Internal Frame class) Iam calling another class.

When I dispose the Internal Frame class, does all its references will be destroyed as well as  the references of the other class called.

If Not, is there any method to destroy all of them.

The references to the other object are removed.
But the actual objects will remain in existence until the garbage collector decides if and when to get rid of them.
The same as any other object.

Commented:
Once the reference to the internal frame is set to null or goes out of scope, the internal frame becomes a candidate for GC, providing there are no other references to it.  The dispose method on a frame has no effect on its references; in the case of JFrame it gets rid of native resources, in the case of JInternalFrame, it merely makes the frame not visible.

Commented:
In this case, all other instances are waiting for GC to run. U can force it to run.
