Java Java Objects (Retired) Meet Objects Creating Classes

Creating a Class

When creating a class in Java, I'm noticing it looks exactly like the code we run it in (Example.java).

Just an observation.

So if I'm writing some code, or creating a class, it both starts with public class Name {}

Yep, that's right, nice observation! Console based applications are actually a class with a static method specifically named main.

All code you write will be part of a class.

Nice! Thanks, I was getting confused with creating a Class and running the app. But this explains it!
