This week's book giveaway is in the Spring forum. We're giving away four copies of Pro Spring MVC with WebFlux: Web Development in Spring Framework 5 and Spring Boot 2 and have Marten Deinum & Iuliana Cosmina on-line! See this thread for details.
Er, I think I phrased the question incorrectly, sorry.
My point was that since classes are created at compnile time, and, if a constructor to itself is called within it, should not here be an error? Since, after all, the class to be constructed is not in existence yet. In all probability I am wrong, and look forward to your clarification. Thank You.
