This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
When one calls up a method inside of another method, is it possible to return to the end point in the first method after they finish the second method? In simpler terms: I go from the middle of M1 to M2. I finish M2. How do I go back to where I left off from in M1?
Assuming that the second method did not terminate the JVM (or that the JVM was not otherwise terminated), then control automatically returns to the first method that invoked the second method. For example, the following code would produce the output method1 begun method2 invoked method1 ended were method1 properly invoked.
