Interface Q

Consider the following 2 snippets of code, in different source files:
public interface MyInterface1
{
interface myMethod{};
}

public interface MyInterface2
{
interface myMethod{}
}

Both seem to compile correctly.
My question:
Does the compiler ignore the ;(semi-colon) at the end of the line interface myMethod{}; in the interface MyInterface1. Is the semi-colon optional or irrelevant? What are the rule(s) regarding the same?

An interface can contain the empty statement (JLS 14.6).
 
That feels good. Thanks. Here's a tiny ad:
