My question is, why is private native void m1(); a legal statement?
I don't see any implementation in there.

How many of the following are legal method declarations?
1 � protected abstract void m1();
2 � static final void m1(){}
3 � transient private native void m1() {}
4 � synchronized public final void m1() {}
5 � private native void m1();
6 � static final synchronized protected void m1() {}


A. 1
B. 2
C. 3
D. 4
E. 5
F. All of them

Well, I don't have much experience using native. I imagined it to be just like any other method with implementation.

Is there an example you can point to where native is used?

Thanks!

Hi Raja,
for an example of Native have a look at Code
for the origional question
methods cannot be transient
so, transient private native void m1() {} option is invalid.
rest all are valid.
