What is the difference between :
public static void main(String args[])
and
static public void main(String[] s)

Why we are not using String args[] in the static public void main as well?

Technically speaking > 
public static void main(String args[])

Is the normal way of declaring a public access main method and its is the normal thing than  :
static public void main(String[] s)

Hope that helps . . .

Here are the meanings : public static void main(String args[])

public :
This method can be accessed from outside the class

static :
This method does not require that an object of the class exists. static methods are sort of like global methods,
they are always available, but you need to use the class name to get them

void : no return value

main(String args[]) :
main() will be passed an array of Strings correspondig to any command line parameter values.

public static void main(String[] args) ==> it's a predefined method signature.
