Comment on Tutorial : this keyword in Java By Jagan
I'm sorry but your closing statement...
"this is of no significant value in the examples just shown..."
... is not quite right. "this" is mandatory in your last code snippet (at least with Sun's Java 6). If you leave out the "this" references, you are actually assigning the constructor parameter values to the constructor's local variables - not to the instance variables.
And, to follow best practices, we'd make the arguments final so that, if we forgot the this's, the compiler would call it out for you.
