    Heap and stack are both memory area. The primitive data types are created on stach whereas objects are created on heap memory area. The stack stores the reference of an object (stored on heap).

    Heap and Stack

    Stack is used for static memory allocation and Heap for dynamic memory allocation, both stored in the computer's RAM .

    You can use the stack if you know exactly how much data you need to allocate before compile time and it is not too big. You can use heap if you don't know exactly how much data you will need at runtime or if you need to allocate a lot of data.
