What Is Static In Java

Meaning of static in Java

If you are a beginner in java, or you have an interest in java programming, you need to carry out a research on how it is done. The best way to do it is by taking java tutorials by attending a college, reading books or online tutorials. Selection of the type of tutorials that you will use depends on your financial abilities. When you undertake the course, you will have to start with the basic java aspects such as java programming language. You will move step by step up to the advanced level of java programming. While taking java tutorials, you will come across the topic static in java. At this point, the question of “what does static mean in java?” this article however, will give an explanation and importance of static in java.

Static keyword is used in java for memory management. This keyword can be applied with variables, blocks, methods and nested class. Static keyword does not belong to the instance of the class but to the class itself. Static can be in form of:

• Method which is known as class method

• Block

• Variable which is known as class variable

• Nested class


If you declare any variable as static, it is known as static variable. A static variable is used to refer to common property of all objects that is not unique for each object. For example, the name of company employees, name of college students etc. A static variable gets memory only once in a class area during the class loading. The advantage of static variable is that it makes your program memory efficient meaning that it saves memory of your program.

Java static block on the other hand is used to initialize the static data member. It is executed before the main method at the time of class loading.

Up to this point I believe that your question on “what does static mean in java” has been answered. After getting the information, you also need to ask yourself whether it is easier to make money with static website or with blogs.

Since many people have discovered the benefits of internet marketing, the question of where to use blogs or static websites remains a challenge. This is because the difference between success and failure lies in the choice of tools and techniques. According to my research, blogs are better for most projects especially if you are a new marketer. The following are some of the reasons for this:


• The learning curve- learning how to build a website is an exciting experience but it can be difficult for a new person to grasp all the concepts involved in programming.

• Cost- there are free HTML editors out there but they are limited to functionality. For you to buy advanced software comes with a higher price tag and higher learning curve.

• Speed of use- updating a webpage can be a big project but you can just log in to your blogs control panel and create a new post.
