Java Program to Check the Accessibility of an Static Variable By a Static Method
  • Last Updated : 12 Apr, 2021

The Static Keyword is a non-access modifier in Java mainly used for memory management. This static keyword is mainly applicable for the following:

  1. Variables
  2. Methods
  3. Blocks
  4. Nested Class

Static Variable is a variable that is declared as static means a single copy of the variable is created and shared among all objects at the class level. Static method is a method belonging to the class rather than the object of a class as well as a static method can be invoked without the need for creating an instance of a class. 

Note:

  • The static variable gets memory only once in the class
  • A static method can access static data members and can change the value of it.

Now here we will be discussing out both the cases with a simple demonstration via clean java programs as follows:

  • Case 1: Accessibility of a static method/s by static variable/s
  • Case 2: Accessibility of a static variable by static method

Case 1: Accessibility of the static methods by static variables



Declaring the variable as static and after that, we called that variable in a static method so that we get that variable as an output. 

Example:

Java




// Java Program to demonstrate Accessibility of a static
// method/s by static variable/s
  
// Importing input output classes
import java.io.*;
  
// Main class
public class GFG {
  
    // Declaring static variable
    static int i = 10;
  
    // Main method
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Print and display the static variable
        System.out.println("Static Variable = " + i);
    }
}
Output
Static Variable = 10

Case 2: Accessibility of a static variable by static method

Declaring the variable, array, and method as static where the static variable and the static array are accessed by the static method. The static method is called without creating an instance of the class.

Example:

Java




// Java Program to demonstrate Accessibility of an static
// variable by static method
  
// Importing input output classes
import java.io.*;
  
// Main class
class GFG {
  
    // Declaring and initializing variables
    // Making variables static
    static int i = 10;
    static int j = 20;
  
    // Declaring the static temporary array
    static int temp[] = { 2, 6, 3, 0, 1, 7 };
  
    // Method 1
    // Multiplication of array elements
    public static void multiply(int n)
    {
        for (int k = 0; k < n; k++) {
            // Multiplying each element of array with i=10
            temp[k] = temp[k] * i;
        }
    }
  
    // Method 2
    // To print an array
    public static void print_Array(int n)
    {
        // Display message
        System.out.print("\nArray = ");
  
        // Iteration using for loop to print complete array
        for (int m = 0; m < n; m++) {
            // Printing array element
            System.out.print(temp[m] + " ");
        }
    }
  
    // Method 3
    // Main driver method
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        System.out.print("Static variable : " + i);
  
        // Length of static array temp[]
        int n = temp.length;
  
        // Calling the static multiply method
        multiply(n);
  
        // Calling the static Print_Array method
        print_Array(n);
    }
}
Output
Static variable : 10
Array = 20 60 30 0 10 70
