// An immutable class
public final class Student
    final String name;
    final int roll_no;
    public Student(String name, int roll_no)
    { = name;
        this.regNo = roll_no;
    public String getName()
        return name;
    public int getRollNo()
        return roll_no;
// Driver class
class Result
    public static void main(String args[])
        Student s = new Student("Hitesh", 18);


It is an identifier enclosed within single quotes (' ').
Example: 'A', '$', 'p'
