    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];
    Example:
    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.

    To declare an array you have to use new keyword, like you create an object in java.

    Declaration of an array of size 10.

    Example: int arr[]=new int[10];
    Array of size 10 is declared. First element will have index 0 so the valid indexes are from 0 to 9. if you try to access arr[10] then it will give you ArrayOutOfBoundsException.

    Initialization of Array:

    After declaration of an array, you can initialize an array using the array variable name and index as follows:

    arr[0]=12;
    arr[1]=12;
    arr[2]=12;
    arr[3]=12; and so on....

    You can combine the declaration and initialization together.

    Declaration and initialization of array:

    int arr[]={1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10}
