An object of a class is also referred to as an instance of that class. When you create an object, the object contains all the fields that were included in the class definition. However, the fields in a class definition are not all the same — there are two kinds. One kind of field is associated with the class and is shared by all objects of the class.
There is only one copy of each of these kinds of fields no matter how many class objects are created, and they exist even if no objects of the class have been created. This kind of variable is referred to as a class variable because the field belongs to the class and not to any particular object, although as I've said, all objects of the class share it. These fields are also referred to as static fields because you use the static keyword when you declare them.
The other kind of field in a class is associated with each object uniquely — each instance of the class has its own copy of each of these fields, each with its own value assigned. These fields differentiate one object from another, giving an object its individuality — the particular name, address, and telephone number in a given Person object, for example. These are referred to as non-static fields or instance variables because you specify them without using the static keyword, and each instance of a class type has its own independent set.
