A a = new A();

means the an object of type A is created in memory and the reference to that memory location is stored in reference variable 'a';

It also means that the reference "a" is declared and set to type "A".

If you do A a = new A(); then you are just creating object for Class A.

However you can do A a = new B(); here polymorphism and Inheritance plays the main role. Here actually you are passing the Sub Class object to the Super class reference like below,



if you do A a = new B(); then you can able to get Super class methods only(ofcourse, includes the methods after overriding but not methods belongs to Class B which is not part of overriding).

In jave if you see the collections then you can understand this, ex List ls = new ArrayList();
