    Question Local Variables for a static method - thread safe?

    Are they?

    Is the exact memory location used for a local variable?
    The method is indeed static so it's in the same memory location, I assume, but are the local variables as well? If they are placed on the stack then there is a different copy for every calling thread.

    Does anybody knows for sure?

    To say if u variable is thread safe or not, it has to be a globale varaible(a class variable).
    When a variable is decleared in a method, if gets distroied when the method execution is dosent matter if its static or not, the fact is its a locale variable.
