Is it a good programming practice to declare a utility method as a final method. suppose I have, avoid type method performing some calculation and displaying the result directly. So, should I always go for the final keyword with it if I have no intention of Inheritance? When you mostly decalir a method as a final method? I already have the idea of final with respect to methods but the purpose of this post is to have more options in my mind while writing code. Your reply in this post will not only help me but may be useful for many others.
