Thanks in advance.

In both cases static reference is made to non-static fileds, hence the compiler error.

Static context relates to class, it works with class. It has no reference like this or super, so we cant access the non-static fields from static context.

Other way, accessing static fields from non-static context is allowed as each instance is related to the class.

Hai,

I just want to know if in the above code, the line,

interface StaticMemberInterface_1{int kk = 2000;}

Is kk implicitly static?

yes, all fields inside an interface are implicitly static and final.
