Newbie question about Static methods
Hello everyone... need to ask u guys a question.
Why do we need the word static in the declaration of the main method ???
Now I see that the main method has to be public so the JVM can see it from outside and I KNOW that static means that its not necessary to create an instance of the method!. But why do we need that in the first place ???
Cant we just remove the static word and declare a new main method.. ???
This whole thing about static is really confusing me...
I hope somebody can explain that and I wish that maybe someone can post a simple little program illustrating the purpose of the static in methods and variables.
Hope u wont find this a dum question.. any help would be appreciated.
