main() method signature

Hi,
I had seen in many sites and certification books that the access specifier public in the main methods signature
public final static void main(String args[])
{ /*...*/}
is mandatory.
However I find that even with other access specifier with main (other than public like protected, private etc.) the code compiles and runs fine.
Please specify what exactly is mandatory and what is not. I am confused.
Thanks,
Rahul
