    Default Private main method

    I tried the following:
    Java Code:
    public class T {
    private static void main(String[] str)
    {
    System.out.println("test");	
    }
    }
    It does not give me any errors at compile time (I am using Eclipse 3.3). When I try to run it, it says "Main method not public". Makes sense.

    But I would like to know, why main method should always be public. This method is not called by other classes directly.
