Hi samura,

the problem is the b variable in BinstanceTest. When you instantiate a BinstanceTest, a second BinstanceTest is instantiated to initialize the b variable which instantiates a BinstanceTest to initialize the b variable which ...

Thanks Manfred,




Operands and Results Using instanceof Operator

In pg 286 (k&B book) table 4.1

I didn't get the 5th row..

1st operand = Foo[]

result = false

why the result is false?

You can not compare obj with arrObj. However comparison between "arrObj[someIndexHere]" and "obj" would be legal.

That was really deadly manfred, good catch.

Samura! Good practice would be to have member variable declarations in the class, and initializations at the place/constructor/methods where they are necessary.
