Java Variables

A variable is a container that holds values that are used in a Java program. In java, all variables must be declared before they are going to be used. The syntax for variable declaration is given below:

type identifier1, identifier2, identifier3;

Here type can be any java primitive datatype or it can be a class or interface. Here identifier is name of the variable.

Example:

int a,b;
char c;
boolean status;

Before using the variable, we need to initialize it. The syntax for initialization is given below:

Example:

a=10;
b=12;
c='a';
status=false;

We can club declaration and initialization into one step as given below:

int a=10,b=12;
char c='a';
boolean status=false;

Pass by value Vs Pass by reference
Pass by value: Passing a copy of the value, not the original reference.

Pass by reference: Passsing the address of the object, so that you can access the original object.
