Yup, having used both languages i generally find python even easier than java to do that.
#Just have a class we can instantiate
x = 1
def __init__(self, number):
self.number = number
instances = 
for f in range(10):
for f in instances:
The main difference is that you do not need to use the 'new' operator and also you do not need to say how long the array is going to be so you can just use the append argument which means that the instance will be appended to the list.
