It belongs to the class you want to execute. It can be any class.

A "main" method is not predefined for any particular class. It can be included in any class you decide to put it in. What is predefined is the way main (with the proper signature) is used as an entry point...

"A Java virtual machine starts execution by invoking the method main of some specified class..." (JLS - 12.1 Virtual Machine Start Up).
