Employee emp1 = new Employee();

By program wise it it simple code. emp1 is an object of Employee class. The Java new keyword allocates memory for the newly created object emp1. Generally an object takes 4 bytes of memory. The constructor Employee(), creates an object of Employee but without name, The nameless object created by the constructor and returned is given name called emp1. With emp1 you call call a method or instance variable etc.

Finally to say, the constructor creates an object, new allocates memory for the newly created object.
