Is there a data type called, "Object"? If so, do you know where I can get documentation on it. None of my Java books mention it.

Object is a class in Java and this is automatically the base class for all the classes...

I am new in here.
When a child class product a object,it will call upward it's father class.
Amd his father will call upward it's father class ,too.
Keep on going to the top class(java.lang.Object).
Because of all classes of Java,if it no inheritance other class,it will
automatically inheritance the class of java.lang.Object.
I am sorry.My English is poor.
