Eclipse Memory Analyzer: Unreachable Objects

An Object becomes unreachable when they don’t have any inbound references or when they become unreachable from any other root.

By default unreachable objects are removed from the heap dump which parsing and will not appear in the class histogram. We can still see the unreachable objects in Eclipse Memory analyzer.
1. From the link on the Overview page
2. From the Query Browser via Java Basics --> Unreachable Objects Histogram
This histogram has no object graph behind it (since they don’t have any in bound references).
