Hi,
Which is executed first when a class is loaded into the JVM... a static initializer statement or a static block..... or are they simply executed in the order in which they occur ?
Does the same apply to instance initializers and blocks ?
Also if we have a static variable with an initializer statement say...
static int i = 5;
Will i be initialized directly to 5 or will it first be initialized to its default value (0) and then have its initializer statement executed - giving it the value 5.
Thanks in advance - Neil.
