- Tips & Tricks
Here are some basic implementations of java language, which you would like to know.
Have a look at the given program below. Found anything unusual?? You got it right! The program below runs without the main method. Here we have used the static block that executes the class directly as soon as it gets loaded without creating any object for it. At the run time, JVM looks for the main method to execute but fails to get it hence terminates the execution. However before exiting from the program it will throw an exception. So use
System.exit(0) to terminate the program at the end of the static block itself.
