    For primitive types:

    int[] newIntArray = new int[4];

    int[] newIntArray = {1,2,3,4};

    int[] newIntArray = new int[]{1,2,3,4};

    For classes, for example String, it's the same:

    String[] newStringArray = new String[5];

    String[] newStringArray = {"a","b","c","d","e"};

    String[] newStringArray = new String[]{"a","b","c","d","e"};

    Hope I answered your question.

    The bellow syntax is followed to declare an array.

    Datatype arrayName[] = new Datatype[arraySize];
    int array[] = new int[5];
    float array[] = new int[4];
    char array[] = new int[8];

    Note: Array size should always be an integer.

    Array initalization :
    int array[] = new int array[4];
    array[0] = 1;
    array[1] = 2;
    array[2] = 3;
    array[3] = 4;

    In array[0] 0 represents the index value.
    Second form:
    There is other way of declaring and initializing values to an array.

    int array[] = {1,2,3,.4,5,6};

    For more details on declaration and initialization of arrays please follow the link.
