Hi Chang,

Hope your question is not complete.

if your question is "how many objects are created? " then the answer is 1

Hi Sandeep,
I have a related note from "Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide (Exam 310-035 & 310-027)"
book by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates on 2nd chapter under static member declaration.
The note is "Another point to remember is that static methods can't be overridden! This doesn't
mean they can't be redefined in a subclass, as we'll see a little later when we look at
overriding in more detail, but redefining and overriding aren't the same thing."
For my understanding the child class only can redefine static methods and those need not follow overriding rules.

Hi Sridhar,
Sun website got a Free Quiz section. This doesn't match completely as the real examination.
Hey Cliff/ Barron,
The sentence 'You can say with certainty, for example, that any code that uses the keyword new will (if it runs successfully) cause the class constructor and all superclass constructors to run' has got nothing to do with the thread constructor.
The thread constructor only be called when you say new Thread() or instantiate any of its subclasses.
In this statement 'Thread[] threads = new Thread[5];' new operator will invoke the classes in the order as array --> Object. The Thread class is not in picture at all.
