How to execute a
java program without having a main () method:
In Java, Up to Java 6 it was possible to do this using the Static Initialization Block. For solve
the problem to a execute java program
without having main method.
For example we have writing
the following code using static block:
System.out.println("static block is
Output: (In JDK 6)
The System.exit (0); is used to the program
exit before the JVM is looking for the main method, otherwise error will be
Exception in thread “main”
In Java 7 & above, however, this does not work anymore, even though it compiles,
the following error will appear when
you try to execute it:
The program compiled successfully,
but main class was not found. Main class
should contains method: public static void main (String  args).
Output: (In JDK 8)
So, we have only execute a java
program without having main method up to valid Java versions 6.
