    Help with objects in Javascrit

     //Define the class
        class author{
        function author(a:String,b:String,c:int)
        this.name = a;
           this.lastname = b;
           this.age = c;
        //Declaring the variables
        var name:String;
        var lastname:String;
        var age:int;
        //I make a new object
        newBook = new author("J.R.","Tolkien",60); 
        //I make other new object
        newBook = new author("Agatha","Christie",42);

    in this code the variable "newBook" to save the whole object, returns to save only the last one that was created...

    Any help???

    Javascript doesn't really have classes in the general meaning of the term.

    And there are various ways to create an object. Might I suggest the following for the example you cite:

    function createNewBookObj(firstName, lastName, Age){
    var x = {}; //create a generic object
    x,name = firstName; //add the property name to the object and set the value to the argument
    x.lastname= lastName; // repeat for the second property
    x.age = Age; // repeat for the third property
    return x; // return the entire created object

    So, to create an object holding the information listed in your code you would

    var myObj = createNewBookObj("J.R.", "Tolkien", "60");

    You can access the data within by referring to it as( for example):
    alert(myObj.age) which would give an alert box indicating 60

    I hope this helps.
