If the entries in a Hashtable are overwritten using putAll() , but the Hashtable continues to be referenced as it is a static class member, will the entries that got overwritten be available for garbage collection?

As long as the previous hashtable elements are no longer referenced by any other objects, the will be eligible for garbage collection.
