Hi, I am new to JAVA. I am reading "CoreJava" book. I ran into couple of the following statments in different programs. If you know, Could you explain it? Toolkit tj = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit() (Page # 273) Here is ToolKit is abstract class. I do not understand the right side part of = sign. I assume tj object is being made. I know abstract classes can not be instantiated. Same thing here too: Container contentPane = frame.getContentPane() // here frame is a class. Thanks, sk
