Object creation in Java is one of the very fundamental processes and it is very important to understand it clearly.As a Java developer you keep creating and dealing with objects now and then. But let’s try to look behind the scenes a bit here, step by step.
Obtaining objects of a class would involve the below mentioned steps:
- First of all, a variable of the class type must be declared. Now, this variable doesn’t define the object.Rather it is a simple variable that can refer to an object.You call it an object reference.
Student s; // will declare a reference variable ‘s’ of type student
- Now, an actual physical copy of that object should be acquired and address or reference of that object should be assigned to the above declared variable. This can be done by using the new operator. Now, using the new operator would involve below sequence of events back stage: Read More
Since main() method in Java is the base from where execution in any class starts. It is very important to understand the signature of main method which is public static void main(String args). Now, let’s look at it bit by bit:
Why main() method is public: Declaring any method or variable public makes it accessible outside its class and provides it the widest scope possible.If a class is declared public, it is accessible outside its package. So, main method has been declared public to ensure its visibility outside its class i.e. to the Java runtime environment or java virtual machine.
Why main() method is static: In any object-oriented language like java, class is the smallest unit of executable code which means that any java source file must only contain classes and not a class with a separate main function like C++.Thus, it was necessary for java to define main() method as part of the class declaration itself.Now this became like famous chicken and egg problem.

The key that allows Java language to be both secure and portable is that the output of a Java compiler is not executable code but rather it is a bytecode. You express your program in source files written in Java programming language, compile the source code to Java class files(bytecode), and run these class files on a Java virtual machine.
Suppose, if your Java code is compiled to native code i.e. the machine code directly , then different versions of the same program would need to exist for each type of CPU-OS combination which is not a feasible solution. Thus, implementing it as a bytecode has made it easy to write portable programs in Java. Read More
