class.newInstance() creates new instance dynamically and object.clone() creates the replica object. What is the difference(both are used for creating instances)?

Did you fully read the API docs for Object#clone() ? What would happen if you invoke the clone() on an object?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
