I read in RHE that transient variables may not be static or final. But why does the following line compile ?
final static transient int i = 10;

Hi Milind,
Though there is no current implementation of this specification, static transient are allowed and compile just fine.

Transient variables can be both final and static.
RHE have corrected this in their errata.(They have asked to
ignore that statement)

Hope this helps..
