I an new and I have a basic question on java interface and want to seek your help.
In my program, I have an interface called ApplicationContext from the Spring org.ache.ApplicationContext API and it has a class named
FileSystemXmlApplicationContext which implement the ApplicationContext interface.

In the FileSystemXMLApplicationContext , I have a constructor called FileSystemXMLApplicationContext and a parameter of type String such as
public FileSystemXMLApplicationContext (string path)

My question is that when I call the constructor FileSystemXmlApplicationText and pass in
a String path then what is the returned object do I get? I am confused since I have both the ApplicationContext interface and the class FileSystemXmlApplicationContext which implements the ApplicationContext. Would the returned type be the type of
FileSystemXmlApplicationContext or the ApplicationContext objects when I call the constructor ? Hope that I do not confuse you , and you understand what I mean.

Thank you so much in advance for your help,

It depends on how you declare the variable.
