Discussion

The function EwUnlockObject() removes the object aObject from the global root set. Objects, which are stored in the root set will still keep alive together with other objects depending on them. Objects, which are not stored in the root set and not referenced by any other object stored in the root set are garbage and will be released during the next EwReclaimMemory() invocation. To add an object to the root set the function EwLockObject() is available.
