Looking at the following question:

Question 2)

What will happen when you attempt to compile and run this code?

public class MyMain{
public static void main(String argv){
System.out.println("Hello cruel world");
}
}

1) The compiler will complain that main is a reserved word and cannot be used for a class
2) The code will compile and when run will print out "Hello cruel world"
3) The code will compile but will complain at run time that no constructor is defined
4) The code will compile but will complain at run time that main is not correctly defined

...marcus says the correct answer is 4. But when I run it, the code compiles runs and nothing is printed out.

Why doesn't it work as the exam answer says?

Arthur.

I trust you are running this under JDK1.4, which is the version of the exam is written for. Either way, under JDK.5 it generates an error message. Are you using the JDK or some IDE?

Just for youtr information.

As of Java 5 both declarations are valid for main method.

public static void main(String[] args)
public static void main(String... args)

Don't be fooled in the exam if you found the second main signature shown above.
 
I miss the old days when I would think up a sinister scheme for world domination and you would show a little emotional support. So just look at this tiny ad:
