Question 496




Final variables should be declared in the beginning?




  • True, final prevents modification of variable, but those have to be initialized at some point- constructor is the right place.
  • Value of a final variable can only be set once- constructor can guarantee this.
  • Constructor is called once for an object while other methods can be called any number of times.
  • A “blank final” instance variable of a class must be definitely assigned at the end of every constructor of the class in which it is declared.
  • A “blank final static” variable must be definitely assigned in a static initializer of the class.
