Representation of class in Scala

Seems very simple but can be source of frustration. So, how to represent class in Scala?

In Java, you refer to a class by adding .class at the end of the class name. In Scala, you get the equivalent of that by using classOf[].

An example for referring String class is as follow:

classOf[String]
