Variables in Java tutorials

  • Variable are placeholder to store values.

  • As value varies from time to time, it is called variable.

  • Variable names are name given to location in memory. Those memory locations can contain integer, real or character data.

  • Every variable is identified by a unique name.

  • As Java being, case sensitive, variable Age is different that variable age.


The syntax for variable declaration in Java is below:


  • Here, data_type must be a valid Java data type including char, int, float, double, or any user defined data type etc, and variable_list may consist of one or more identifier names separated by commas.

  • Note: Datatype is explained in next topic of this course.

Variable Naming rules in Java

  • Variable must start with letter or underscore(_), which may be followed by a sequence of letters or digits(0-9).

  • The first character in a variable name cannot be a digit.

  • Variable in Java can have any number of character.

  • Variable name must be unique.

  • Example: To store five different numbers, five unique variable names need to be used.

  • Special Characters are not allowed.

  • White spaces are also not allowed.

  • Keywords cannot be used as variable name.

Some of the valid variable examples are below

  1. Game_level

  2. _highscore

  3. This_variable_name_is_very_long

Some of the invalid variable examples are below

  1. #run

  2. 2num

  3. int

There are three kinds of variables in Java

  1. Local variables

  2. Instance variables

  3. Class/static variables

Local variables

  • Similar to how an object stores its state in fields, a method will often store its temporary state in local variables. The syntax for declaring a local variable is similar to declaring a field (for example, int count = 0;).

  • There is no special keyword designating a variable as local; that determination comes entirely from the location in which the variable is declared which is between the opening and closing braces of a method. As such, local variables are only visible to the methods in which they are declared; they are not accessible from the rest of the class.

Instance variables

  • Objects store their individual states in "non-static fields", that is, fields declared without the static keyword.

  • Non-static fields are also known as instance variables because their values are unique to each instance of a class

Class/static variables

  • These variables are declared at the top level. They begin their life when first class loaded into memory and ends when class is unloaded. As they remain in memory till classes exist, so these variables often called Class variables. There only one copy of these variables exist

  • These variables are having highest scope that is they can be accessed from any method/ block in a class

  • When no explicit assignment made while declaration they are initialized to default values , depending on their type.
