Java Program to Check Whether Which One is Executed First, Static block or the Static Method

This is a Java Program to Check Whether Which One is Executed First , Static block or the Static Method.

Static block is used to initialise the static data members dynamically. If you want to perform a task only once in life cycle of class then put that code in static block.

Here is the source code of the Java Program to Check Whether Which One is Executed First , Static block or the Static Method. The Java program is successfully compiled and run on a Windows system. The program output is also shown below.
