In this section, three kinds of class constructors are discussed:
|Type of class constructor||Comments|
|Instance||Used to create and initialize instances of the class.|
|Private||A special type of instance constructor that is not accessible outside the class. A class cannot be instantiated using a private constructor.|
|Static||Called automatically to initialize the class before the first instance is created or any static members are referenced. The constructor cannot be called directly.|
