Creating object of the class

An object is the instance of the class. In java 'new' keyword is used to create new object.

Steps to create a object :

Object Declaration :

An object is declared using a variable name(object name) and type of the objects.

Mainclass mc;

Object Instantiation :

The 'new ' key word is used to create the object.

mc = new Mainclass();

Object Initialization (Optional step):

The 'new' keyword is followed by a call to a constructor. This call initializes the new object.

mc = new Mainclass("Ankit");

Example :

Given below complete example with output snap :

public class Mainclass {
	int myage;

	public Mainclass(String name) {
		// This constructor has one parameter, name.
		System.out.println("Name :" + name);

	void setAge(int age) {
		myage = age;

	int getAge() {
		System.out.println("Age :" + myage);
		return myage;

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		/* Object creation */
		Mainclass mc = new Mainclass("Ankit");

		/* Call class method to set age */

		/* Call another class method to get age */

		/* You can access instance variable as follows as well */
		System.out.println("Fetched Value via object :" + mc.myage);

Output :

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_18\bin>javac

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_18\bin>java Mainclass

Name :Ankit
Age :24
Fetched Value via object :24
