This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
static means 'one per class'
Usually we mark a method 'static' in a class and can call it without having to make an instance of that class.
In case of interfaces, where is the body of the method?
What will it execute, even if it is allowed.
If the methods of an interface are implicitly 'abstract' it means that the method body is not there.
