this is good if you have no class hierarchy. But if you have super class: (assuming you are creating an object of sub class)
1)static initializers/expressions in the order they appear of the super class
2)static initializers/expressions in the order
they appear of the sub class
3)instance initializers/expressions in the order they appear of the super class
4)constructor of super class
5)instance initializers/expressions in the order
they appear of the sub class
6)constructor of sub class
