The varaibles declared in static or instance initialization blocks will cease to exists once the block completes execution.
Thanks

But, Instance init blocks are used as a place to put code that all constructors in a class share. can you just please give eg for it.
Here,
when i try to print 'x'. it prints 0. why not 999 ?

That is because you have two different 'x' variables in your class. The first is the static variable that didn't get initialized, and hence, has the value of zero. And the second is the local variable declared in your initializer, which has already been mentioned, went out of scope, after it has been set to 999.
