class Star {
static {
System . out . print ( " Static " ) ;
}

{
System . out . print ( " Init " ) ;
}

Star ( ) {
System . out . print ( " Const " ) ;
}

public static void main ( String args [ ] ) {
System . out . print ( " main " ) ;
}
};

In this method Static and main is printed...
why init is not displayed???
Even if we create construtor of the class Star init is not printed? why is it so?

An init block runs everytime an instance of the class is created.

If it runs for every instance then why it is not printing Init in the above code?

Simply put, your code doesn't create any instances of the Star class. Therefore that instance initializer block is never executed.
