Java Constructor Examples

  • Constructors are required to create objects for a class. Constructors are used to initialize the instance variables of an object.
  • Constructor declaration looks like method declaration. It must have the same name as that of the class and have no return type.
  • Constructors can be classified into two types, default constructors and parametarized constructors.
  • If you don't define a constructor, then the compiler creates a default constructor. Default constructors do not contain any parameters. Default constructors are created only if there are no constructors defined by us.
  • Prametarized constructors are required to pass parameters on creation of objects. We can overload constructors with different datatypes as its parameters.
  • Use 'this()' to communicate from one constructor to another constructor in the same class.
  • Use 'super()' to communicate with super class constructor.

When to use LinkedList or ArrayList?
Accessing elements are faster with ArrayList, because it is index based. But accessing is difficult with LinkedList. It is slow access. This is to access any element, you need to navigate through the elements one by one. But insertion and deletion is much faster with LinkedList, because if you know the node, just change the pointers before or after nodes. Insertion and deletion is slow with ArrayList, this is because, during these operations ArrayList need to adjust the indexes according to deletion or insetion if you are performing on middle indexes. Means, an ArrayList having 10 elements, if you are inserting at index 5, then you need to shift the indexes above 5 to one more.
