    Default simple question...

    when you decalre this
    public static void main(String[] args) {
     
               new MyClass();
    }

    does it mean you are referring to a new instantiated object of that class?

    just for some clarification

    well you need to assign the object to a variable for starters, so you can access it.

    for example:

    public static void main(String[] args) {
      MyClass obj = new MyClass();
    }

    Once this is done then obj does indeed refer to a newly instantiated instance of class MyClass.

    You call constructor of MyClass. this code allocate a memory and by adding handler you could use this class's methods and variables.
