new is a Java keyword. It creates a Java object and allocates memory for it on the heap. new is also used for array creation, as arrays are also objects.

Syntax:

<JavaType> <variable> = new <JavaObject>();

For example:

Computer code
LinkedList list = new LinkedList();
int[] intArray = new int[10];
String[][] stringMatrix = new String[5][10];
