I am bit confused about the relation between association /aggregation/composition.

I can define the aggregation in following code. Please help me to define the other two.
Class A{
class B {
A a =new A();

Thanks in advance.

We're going to move this over to the intermediate forum - these topics aren't on the SCJP exam.
