Sample text

Methods are called “member functions” in C++ terminology. The keywords public and private are access modifiers—they specify the visibility of the variables or methods that follow. A public variable or method can be directly accessed by all other objects; a private variable or method can only be accessed by a method in a class where the private member is defined. You’ll learn about two other access levels—protected and default—in the following chapters. Constructors A constructor method is called to initialize an object.

This is an access specifier that states that any object can invoke main(). • static. This means that main() is a class method, and can be invoked even if an instance of the class isn’t allocated. • void. This means that main() doesn’t return anything. lang package, and thus automatically included by the Java compiler. System has a variable out; out is an object with a method println(). This method, as its name implies, takes an argument (in this case, a String) and prints it to standard output.

Methods and classes can also be declared final; you’ll learn about this in the next chapter. Memory Management In Java, memory is dynamically allocated with the new keyword. But unlike C++, there isn’t a delete operator to free allocated memory that is not needed. This is because Java’s runtime system automatically garbage-collects memory no longer in use. You don’t need to worry about freeing memory you have finished using. Sometimes an object holds system resources that the garbage collector doesn’t keep track of, such as file descriptors or sockets.
