Program: Example for static block vs constructor.


Description:

Java static blocks will be called when JVM loads the class into memory, means it will be called only once. But constructor will be called everytime when you create an object. The below example can give you an idea about execution.


Code:
package com.java2novice.staticexmp;

public class MyStaticVsConstructor {

	static {
		System.out.println("I am in static block");
		System.out.println("Static block will be called first than constructor!!!");
		System.out.println("Static block will be called only once.");
	}
	
	public MyStaticVsConstructor(){
		System.out.println("I am in constructor");
	}
	
	public static void main(String a[]){
		MyStaticVsConstructor ksv1 = new MyStaticVsConstructor();
		MyStaticVsConstructor ksv2 = new MyStaticVsConstructor();
		MyStaticVsConstructor ksv3 = new MyStaticVsConstructor();
		MyStaticVsConstructor ksv4 = new MyStaticVsConstructor();
	}
}

Output:
I am in static block
Static block will be called first than constructor!!!
Static block will be called only once.
I am in constructor
I am in constructor
I am in constructor
I am in constructor

Domain Naming Service(DNS)
It is very difficult to remember a set of numbers (IP address) to connect to the Internet. The Domain Naming Service(DNS) is used to overcome this problem. It maps one particular IP address to a string of characters. For example, www.java2novice.com implies com is the domain name reserved for US commercial sites, java2novice is the name of the company and www is the name of the specific computer, which is java2novice's server.
