It makes no difference whether you are dealing with an object or a standard item like an int, float or double.

This form you have created the item type ... these all do the same
int i;                               // You created an integer type called i
double d;                            // You created a double called d
DownloadManager objDownloadManager;  // You created a DownloadManager called objDownloadManager

This form you have created a POINTER TO THE ITEM ... it's most likely just 4 bytes (assuming 32bit compilation).
As we haven't set them to anything they are effectively undefined and could be pointing anywhere.
int* i;                               // You created a pointer to an integer type called i
double* d;                            // You created a pointer to a double type called d
DownloadManager* objDownloadManager;  // You created a pointer to a DownloadManager type called objDownloadManager

So they are vastly different and not something you should ever be confused about .. NOT EVER.

So if you like the second form is like the address to your house, the first form is your ACTUAL PHYSICAL house.
What you are doing is telling me that if I write text for the address of a house I can live in the text because
it's the same thing as a physical house and it's confusing to you.

You use the pointer form for the same reason you use a written address for you house. Its a bit tiresome and hard
to carry the whole house around just so people can send you mail. The alternative reason might be because your
house hasn't yet been built to carry around Smile | :)
In vino veritas
