One thing i’ve noticed when you declare an instance of an object as final,
is that you can still modify the object properties, even while the object is declared as final.
// Final object example final Foo myFoo = new Foo(); //This will output the default value, let's say 0 System.out.println(myFoo.getValue()); // Set the value to 20 myFoo.setValue(20); //This will output the new value, 20, with no compilation errors System.out.println(myFoo.getValue());
One thing you’ll have to keep in mind is that when you’d like to re-declare the object:
// Re-declare the object myFoo = new Foo();
This won’t work, it’ll throw errors since myFoo was final after all 🙂
