First Hello World! Program

web development, php, java

First of all, We understand all keyword which uses in Hello World Java Program.

class: class keyword is used to declare classes in Java

public: It is an access specifier. Public means this function is visible to all.

static: static is again a keyword used to make a function static. To execute a static function you do not have to create an Object of the class. The main() method here is called JVM, without creating any object for class.

void: It is the return type, meaning this function will not return anything.

main: main() method is the most important method in a Java program. This is the method that is executed, hence all the logic must be inside the main() method. If a java class is not having a main() method, it causes a compilation error.

String[] args: This represents an array whose type is String and whose name is args. We will discuss more arrays in the Java Array section.

System.out.println: This is used to print anything on the console like printf in C language.

Println: This is used to print for the next line. Which Together With System.out.println.

Print: This is used to print not the next line. Which Together With System.out.print.
