    Default Call object - syntax

    Hi all!

    I'm only just started with java. When I thinker with some simple classes/objects I don't know how to call/use objects in my code. Let me clarify with an example.

    Example:
    File: Car.java
    Java Code:
    public class Car(){ heaps of code...}
    File: Race.java
    Java Code:
    public class Race()
    {
      //How do I call Car in the constructor?
      //How do I call Car in a method? Let's say I want to create an array of the type Car. 
      Car[] arrayOfCars = new Car[random];
      //etc...
    }
    Sorry if I ask stuff like this. I just need to get started on this, bear with me.


    Edit
    When I do this:
    PHP Code:
    Object [] array_containing_objects = new Object[10];
    I get this message for DrJava;
    Java Code:
    Static Error: Undefined name 'array_containing_objects'

    Default

    Thanks!

    Argh, it seems I missed out on what I did wrong... I can create an Object from an external file. This works:
    Java Code:
    ExternalObject TestObject = new TestObject();
    I guess I do something wrong when I try to create an array with the type of ExternalObject in my code.

    How should I do if I like to have an array containing objects..?

    Edit, I found the syntax of how create and work with an array of objects.
