Hi,

In the first case variable j is initiated at class load time, so it is already initiated when an object of class TestStaticOrder is created (and variable i initiated). So it compiles fine.

In the second case there is a forward reference to uninitiated varaible j, with is forbidden. So it doesn't compile.

Hi
Mike Static come into picture at First than anyother part of code and at compile time.
That is the reason.
