    Default arrays in java

    does anyone know what a "soft copy of an array" is and what a "hard copy of an array is"....

    if so what is the difference in the two?

    thanks

    do you mean a deep copy vs a shallow copy?

    from what the teacher told us, i think its something to do with how you save or store them maybe? i have a final in that class tomorrow and he said that we would need to know a " hard copy of an array" so im trying figure out what exactly it is.
