Declare and Instantiate an Object in Two Steps

I am not sure why the following does not work.

public class Test {
.....
}

class Test2 {
Test t;
t = new Test();
}

But this one works.

public class Test {
....
}

class Test2 {
Test t;

public void setup() {
t = new Test();
}
}

Can anyone explain it. Thanks.

Java code must be either be in an initializer, in a constructor, in a method, or part of a variable declaration.
