this is not homework. I need to understand what happens in jvm internally when a method is invoked.

Hi javaagile,

This is one of those cases where "try it and see" would have been the best advice anybody could give you. You could have done something like this and found the answer in much less time:

public class Foo
{
   static
   {
      System.out.println("In <clinit>");
   }

   public Foo()
   {
      System.out.println("In <init>");
   }

   public void getName()
   {
      System.out.println("In getName()");
   }
}

Open in new window


If you're really interested in learning and using Java, you'll do thousands of little investigations just like this. Best get used to it, if you ask me.

Thanks CPColin, I knew this execution order but was not familiar with terms like <clinit> and <init>
