public class Q8
{
int i = 20;
static
{
int i = 10;
}
public static void main(String[] args)
{
Q8 a = new Q8();
System.out.println(a.i);

}
}
It prints 20 as expected but my qs. is- How can we access variable i in the static block from main method ?

Hi Tejal,
you cannot access variable i in the static initializer, as that 'i' has its life only within the { } block.
For detailed explanation, see Mughal in section 8.2 and example 8.7.
