Hi people.

Let's say i have to create a student object - say student name, id and phone number. Is it possible to create an array of these student objects?

You can create an array of references to Students; just as normal variables are just references to objects, array elements are, too. So when you construct an array of Student it will contain all null Student references. If you want to construct a Student for each position in the array, then could use a loop to do that:



More likely you'd have a file containing Student data, and you read it in a loop and construct Student objects based on the data.
