LOTS. A class is a class, and an object is an object.

Perhaps you'd like to expand on your confusion here?

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?

Well, of course they defer in that matter but to what detail do they differ?

I hate to say, but that question suggests that you need to read the Java tutorials, starting right at the very beginning.

This is not a criticism; simply that this forum can't teach you Java from the ground up. We're here to answer questions when you have a basic grasp of Java and have questions about something you've run into in your learning process.

You are correct Winston. Perhaps, Kenny has not grasped the fundamentals of the language. Hence, his questions are not specific.

@Kenny: I suggest that you read "Head First Java" book by Sierra-Bates. It would help you clarify your basic concepts about the language.
