Generational Garbage Collection

P: n/a
Hello Group,

I'm working on a seminar talk about generational garbage collection in the
Java HotSpot enginge. Now most things are quite clear to me, but there's
a question I didn't find an answer yet:

On a minor collection, how can I move Objects, say from Eden to SS#1,
without touching the old generation? What if an object from the old
generation refers to one in Eden? I mean, when at the same time they stop
using handles for object references...

Any hint's or (even better) references would be helpful to me. Thanx alot!
