Khalid's book states:Pg126
Transient modifier should not be specified for static variables as these do not belong to objects
But later in the problem 4.26 Pg 130
Is this legal declaration?
final transient static private double PI = 3.141592
The answer is true.
Can someone please explain?
thanks

Transient class can be declared as static and final. RHE reported this wrong and corrected it on the errata sheet.

Bill,
I would like to correct a small error, transient cannot be
applied to a class or a method, it can only be applied to
variables.
read the line
" Transient class can be declared as static and final. RHE reported this wrong and corrected it on the errata sheet "
which you had written.
