member vs method...

Posted by Yoo, Woo Jong on February 04, 2001 at 9:55 PM

in example,

class C1 {
priavte int x;
public setX(int p) {
x = p;
C1 cc1 = new C1();
C1 cc2 = new C1();

In C++, as i know, physically a member 'x' is located two other place(cc1 & cc2), but a method 'setX' is located one place. So compile-time after, 'cc1.setX(8)' and 'cc2.setX(9) are tranformed secretly to 'C1.setX(cc1,8)' and 'C1.setX(cc2.9)'...

In java ,like a C++, is a member independently located as the number of objects, and is a method shared by all same type object?
Other words, is a method physically located one place irrelatively the number of objects?
