Employee is a subclass of person.

Person array[]= new Employee[5];

Is this the same as

array[0]=new Employee(); array[1]= new Employee(); . . .

Not quite the same:

Person array[]= new Employee[5];

Creates an array with 5 elements uinitialized, after that you have to initialize each element in the array:

array[0]=new Employee();
array[1]= new Employee(); . . .
