Will constructors be inherited in the sub class?
Ans is G:

System.out.println(x + y + foo());
first id adds x and y.after that it concats the string.
if you declare x as an instance variable you cant use that x in a static mehod directly... to access that you have to create an instance of the class and on that instance only you can access the variable...

Originally posted by muskaan gaffor:
int x=0; //line#1
public static void main(String d[]) { //line#2
while(x<=0) { // line#3

when i use the above code in my program, it will throw a error, cannot make a static reference to nonstatic fiel x.

public static void main(String d[]) { //line#4
int x=5; //line#5
while(x<=0) { // line#6

this compiles fine.

the variables (non static) used in static method.why is not giving error?


Yes, Using == operator we can compare instances of the same class.

From the way you wrote the getInstance() method, can't someone just call your method more than once? And get more than once instance of the class?


The object will be created once in static method and if someone calls this static method more than once, object reference will be returned... it is called singleton class

How can I write a class, so that only one object can be created for the class?

You write a constructor which has private access modifier and create an instance in a static method and return the object reference.
class A
private A()
static A getInstance()
A a = new A();
return a;
this way only one object will be created for class A.
