Note however, that this array object doesn't contain the actual string data. Rather, it simply sets aside memory for storage of two references to String objects. No memory has been set aside to store the characters that make up the individual strings. You must allocate the memory for the actual String objects separately using code similar to the following.

myArrayOfStringReferences[0] = new String("This is the first string."); myArrayOfStringReferences[1]= new String( "This is the second string.");

Back to Question 17

Answer 16

Java supports string concatenation using the overloaded + operator as shown in the following code fragment:

"My variable has a value of " + myVar + " at this point in the program."

Back to Question 16

Answer 15

String objects cannot be modified once they have been created. StringBuffer objects can be modified

Back to Question 15

Answer 14

The Java compiler considers a series of characters surrounded by quotation marks to be a literal string, as in the following code fragment:

"This is a literal string in Java."

Back to Question 14

Answer 13

A string is commonly considered to be a sequence of characters stored in memory and accessible as a unit. Java implements strings using the String class and the StringBuffer class.

Back to Question 13

Answer 12

Java allows you to assign one array to another. When you do this, you are simply making another copy of the reference to the same data in memory. Then youhave two references to the same data in memory. This is illustrated in the program named array02.java in Jb0240: Java OOP: Arrays and Strings .

Back to Question 12

Answer 11

False. When declaring a two-dimensional array, it is not necessary to declare the size of the secondary dimension when the array is declared. Declaration ofthe size of each sub-array can be deferred until later as illustrated in the program named array01.java in Jb0240: Java OOP: Arrays and Strings .

Back to Question 11

Answer 10

False. Java can be used to produce multi-dimensional arrays that can be viewed as an array of arrays. However, the secondary arrays need not all be ofthe same size. See the program named array01.java in Jb0240: Java OOP: Arrays and Strings .

Back to Question 10

Answer 9

Array objects can contain any Java data type including primitive values, references to ordinary objects, and references to other array objects.

Back to Question 9

Answer 8

All array objects have a length property that can be accessed to determine the number of elements in the array as shown below.

for(int cnt = 0; cnt<myArray.length; cnt++) myArray[cnt]= cnt;

Back to Question 8

Answer 7

False. Array indices always begin with 0.

Back to Question 7

Answer 6

False. While it is possible to simultaneously declare the name of the variableand cause memory to be allocated to contain the array object, it is not necessary tocombine these two processes. You can execute one statement to declare the variableand another statement to cause the memory for the array object to be allocated as shown below.

int[] myArray;. .. myArray = new int[25];

Back to Question 6

Answer 5

False. As with other objects. the declaration of the variable does not allocate memory to contain the array object. Rather it simply allocates memory tocontain a reference to the array object. Memory to contain the array object must be allocated from dynamic memory using statements such as the following.

int[] myArray = new int[15]; int myArray[]= new int[25];int[] myArray = {1,2,3,4,5}

Back to Question 5

Answer 4

int[] myArray;int myArray[];

Back to Question 4

Answer 3

In declaring the variable, you must provide two important pieces of information:

  • the name of the variable
  • the type of the variable, which indicates the type of data to be stored in the array

Back to Question 3

Answer 2

False. Java has a true array type and a true String type with protective features to prevent your program from writing outside the memorybounds of the array or the String .
