Hello,

I hope there will be more posts to add to my input.

The stack is where method being invoked and local variables live.

The HEAP is the garbage collector where ALL Objects LIVE.

Hope this helps...

In reference to instance variables: Instance variable object references and/or primitives are �unique� to an object instantiated in the heap.

Since I am very very new to Java is this what you mean... (see quotes)

To sum up, instance variables can be unique "object references" or primitives and are created and initialized when an object of the class is created (instantiated).

Tom,

your snippet in the "To sum up" section is exactly what I needed. I'm adding it to my book now.

Thank you,

I am a Lotus Notes Developer breaking into OO. I am reading Head First Java 5.0 and am on chapter 2. Clarification please on the topic of instance variables� Is an instance variable an Object? Am I correct in saying instance variables are Objects and since a �class� is the blueprint of an Object instance variables are Objects within the main Object type created from the class? Whew, I think I need a drink!
