Sample text

In Java, we would say that we have created an instance of cake from the recipe Cake. The act of creating an instance of a class is called instantiating that object. You instantiate an object of a class. To instantiate an object, use the assignment operator (=), the keyword new, and a special kind of method called a constructor. A call to a constructor is the name of the class being instantiated followed by a pair of parentheses. Although it looks like a method, it takes a class’s name; that’s why it’s capitalized: = new ; For example, to instantiate a new object of the Geek class and name the instance thisProgrammer: Geek thisProgrammer = new Geek(); A constructor sets up a new instance of a class: it initializes all the variables in that class, making them immediately available.

The Object class itself contains a constructor and several methods of importance, including clone(), equals(), and toString(). Method Argument Description clone () Creates and returns a copy of an object. equals (Object obj) Indicates whether another object is “equal to” the specified object. toString () Returns a string representation of an object An object that uses the clone() method simply makes a copy of itself. When a copy is made, the new memory is allocated for the clone first, then contents of the original object is copied into the clone object.

CharValue(); The toString() and equals() methods are used similarly as in the Object class. math package, provides useful methods that implement common math functions. This class is not instantiated and is declared final, so it cannot be subclassed. Some of the methods included in this class are: sin(), cos(), exp(), log(), max(), min(), random(), sqrt(), and tan(). The following are several examples of these methods. pow(d1, 10)); Some of these methods are overloaded to accept and return different data types.
