Why do we use public static with the main function in Java?..

Answer / rana

As we know public means we can access the method from
anywhere.Coming to static:- main() is a static method
therefore it implies that there is no need of creating
Object for that particular class to call this method.So
that when ever u run the program the Jvm will search for
main() in the class even there r no class objects created
for this class.

Why do we use public static with the main function in Java?..

Answer / balaji kumar

public - it can be access outside of the(class, package,
subclass and world).

Static- It is used to run a method without any references of
a class. Then JVM will check all the 'static' methods in
"main class" and run the main method from those.

void- main method always has no return value to outside
methods or others. so it uses void keyword.
