Hi,
Welcome to JavaRanch!
Add a static int member to the class. In each constructor, increment this variable. The variable will then represent the total number of objects created. You may also want a static "getCount()" method to fetch that info.

Make the static int variable volatile, so that u dont have problems when two instances are being created at the same time.
