java instance of a class

I have a question if you make an instance of class what can you put in the parameters what is the difference between those 2 examples

1 Scanner scanner = new Scanner(System.in);
2 Game game = new Game("treehouse")

1 Answer

That depends on the default constructors in your class.


public class Game {
   private String mSomeString;
   // here comes your default constructor:
   public Game(String someStringHere) {
      mSomeString = someStringHere;
   // here is the rest of your class with its getters and setters...
