What does Static stands for?
What is the purpose of declaring a method Static, I've heard that it's for eliminate inheritance in Java. But I don't have that really clear.

I find this easiest to think of as a property of the blueprint, or
class, and not requiring an
object, or instance, to be used.
We'll do more with them in the near future.

Have a read of the following link which contains a lot more information than what I can put into a single reply.
Hope that helps.

Hi Cesar! After a quick google search for this question, I found this Stack Overflow post.
Take a look through the answers, It helped me better understand static methods/variables in Java, hope this helps you as well! :)
