In the above code the constructor is setting a value to the final variable name.
How is that possible? This runs fine and prints FINAL VARIABLE!
Please explain.

A final field or variable can be set up once and once only. That can be done at declaration, in an initialiser (fields only) or in the constructor (again fields only).
