Why do we use Constructors in Java ? What is the purpose of it?

To construct objects? Their purpose seems pretty self-evident: when you create an object, there's obviously a need to initialize the data in that object to a particular known good state. That's what constructors are for.

To ensure everything the object needs is initialized at construction time.
