initialization redundancy

Avoid Redundant Initialization (0-false-null)
It’s very unnecessary to initialize member variables to the following values: 0, false and null. Because these values are the default initialization values of member variables in Java. For example, the following initialization in declaration is unnecessary:
1
2
3
4
5
public class Person {
    private String name = null;
    private int age = 0;
    private boolean isGenius = false;
}
This is also redundant:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
public class Person {
    private String name;
    private int age;
    private boolean;
 
    public Person() {
        String name = null;
        int age = 0;
        boolean isGenius = false;
    }
}
Therefore, if you know the default initialization values of member variables, you will avoid unnecessary explicit initialization. See more here:

i am not clear on below

This is also redundant:


does it mean initialization in the constructor as well apart from at class level

public Person() {
        String name = null;
        int age = 0;
        boolean isGenius = false;
    }
}
