Or to put it another way: every time you create a Test1, that creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1, which creates a new Test1...

Thank you Seetharaman and Matthew. So, in this case #2 will cause a Test1 class to load and while loading it will create another class instance at #1 and while loading that instance it will load another class instance at #1 and so on... Is this where the recursion happening?

when you say java x.y.z.ClasstoRun then Jvm load that class and search for a main method...and then creating instance etc.. got the difference?

So, in this case, when jvm load the class what line will be executed first #1 or #2 (from main method)?
