Why the main method is declared as static in java?

In a simple Java program, we declare the main method as follows:

public class Employee {
    // main method
    public static void main(String[] args) {


The method is named main.

When using the java filename command, the JVM loads the Java class into memory and searches for the main class in the Java file. main method is an entry file for execution.

If the main method is not found, it throws the NoClassFoundError exception.

If the main method is found, it starts the execution of the Java code process.

To access any method, you can use the method name with an object (like object.method()).

We declare the main method as static, signifying that the JVM can directly call the main function using the class name, bypassing the need for object creation.

As a result, object creation is bypassed because the main method is declared static.

The void in the main method indicates that it returns nothing.

The public keyword means it is accessible to all, implying that it can be accessed from outside all classes.

Strings Args[]: arguments are command-line arguments for the Java class. You can set arguments through the command line as part of the Java tool to provide additional input while executing a Java program.

usage :- java javafilename argument1 argument2

The values argument1 and argument2 are available in the String args[] array once the execution starts with the above command.

Hence, main method is declared static due to the these method always bind to class, not an object.
