i have public class and one main method. If i don't call (non main) methods within the main(), whether (non main) methods will execute?

In the above code main method calls a method print() ( instance method ) so print() will get executed. If there is no call to any instance methods in the main method then none of them will execute . Program will terminate after executing all statements in main().

no. Those methods won't get executed unless and until they are called from main() method or that class static method.

This code will print
In static method
In main method

Is it possible to call non static methods within the static initializer?

No. If you are calling a Non-Static method from a Static method, you 'll get an error. Logically speaking Static method's are Class Methods, so on calling a non static method from a static means, non static method of which instance are we referring to ?
