Using a Java File with an Empty Main Method

This is sort of like cheating the Java runtime. Ideally, I believe, starting Java 1.6, you cannot execute Java programs without a standard main method. Prior to that, only the static block was sufficient.

You actually do not have to create an instance of the file, but a skeletal main method is required.

public class JavaFileWithEmptyMain{    //static block - No class instance needed   static    {       System.out.println("In static block");       String staticVariable = "Variable in static block";      System.out.println("Value of staticVariable: " + staticVariable);    }        public static void main(String args[])   {       // No implementation - empty    }} /*

Expected output:

Case 1: When the main method does not exists or commented.

Case 2: As per the above code
