i have read that for each constructor there is instance initialization method whose name is <init> and return type is void. i would like to know is there any way to view those instance initialization methods. ?

Well either your just using the default one or you've added one, if you've added one you can see it in your java ;-) to see the default out get a class viewer say jclasslib byecode viewer load up your class and there it is (albeit as byte code) ... I think the more interesting thing is why you would want to see it ???
