What is Proxies in Magento 2?

Proxies are used to solve a specific problem in Magento 2. Proxies work as a substitute. In programming, proxies are classes that can be used in place of any other classes. In Magento 2 Proxies are used on behalf of resource hungry classes.

Why Proxies are used in Magento 2?

Magento 2 uses various types of dependencies of which constructor injection and method injection are the best. But there is trouble using the constructor injection.

If you wish to use another class object in your class you are unable to instantiate the class in Magento 2. Instead, you need to inject the object in the constructor and afterward, it can be used in the class.
