This can take a bit of getting used to, but after a while, you get used to just lying back and enjoying. When in doubt, just create another object, and Java will take care of the rest. Creating new objects is even pretty efficient, so don’t worry about it on that score. There are only two caveats. 1. Objects that use system resources will normally have a method to explicitly release those resources. close(); The close will release the file handle and do other system-related tidying up. It doesn’t free the mystream object directly, but now it’s not consuming system resources you might need elsewhere.

I've been called in total: 4 times. I'm a nonstatic method. Called: 2 times. I've been called in total: 5 times. I'm a nonstatic method. Called: 3 times. I've been called in total: 6 times. 16 CHAPTER 1 GETTING STARTED What this slightly more complex example shows is that the classVariable is definitely associated with the instance of the class, whereas the staticVariable is associated with the class itself. Once the class has been loaded, it will stay in memory forever. A keen-eyed observer will note that main is a static method.

Println(forth); } } Since constructors are all about initializing your object, I’ve shown a few of the many ways of skinning this particular cat in Java. If you look at the various fields in Listing 1-7, you’ll see you can just include an “= value” as part of the definition. Looking a bit further down, you can see what looks like a function without a name or type, just a set of curly braces. This is called an initializer. It will be called every time the class is constructed, and you can use it for more complex initializations than the single-line approach.
