Array constructor

Exactly what code runs when you initialize an array as follows? I tried to see in debug but it doesn't go into the array's constructor. Just curious what it looks like.

Welcome to the Ranch.

Arrays are a built-in feature of Java. There's really no code to jump into - in fact, there's a single bytecode instruction for creating an array (the bytecode instruction "anewarray").

There is no constructor for arrays.
