to access methods we can create ojects to the classes to which the method belongs .and by using objectname.methodname() we can access methods.But we are using System.out.println() why ? is there any other alternate to access println method ehich is in printstraem class?

java.lang.System is a class.

"out" is a static field of the System class. Being static, it exists independent of an instance of the System class. The type of "out" is java.io.PrintStream.

So, "System.out" gives you an instance of PrintStream, on which you are calling the method println().
