What makes you think it will give Compile time errors? An Abstract class can contain concrete methods. Also You don't need to instantiate an Object in order to invoke the static methods of the class.

And is not required to contain any abstract methods.

All in all, there�s no need to be surprised when this code compiles and runs successfully!

Yes, thnks for your attention,
But Still a query i mean, hwy Java allows abstract class which contains main method. because if i havce the following code then it will not allow me to create the instance of the class.

You don't need an instance to call a static method.

because static methods don't require their defining class to be instantiated as an object before you can access and execute the methods.

As stated above, the syntax of the class you posted above is absolutely fine.
