The static variables are initialized before the instance variables.

Assignment of static variables occurs in a static initializer, unless they are compile-time constants (in which case their "memory" is allocated in the class literal pool), so they are the same thing. This occurs in order of their appearance (and that of other initalizers) in the source file. Static methods do not have memory allocated.

Babu,

Actually you are on the wrong track, only static variable gets memory. Static Block and static methods doesn't memory. Although if you have static variable also in Methods and Blocks. then also static block will get first executed and all static variables get allocated then all static variable defined outside of the static block get allocated. I hope this will ease your problem.

Cheer Up Babu L.
