    My question: Are there any lines of this code which seem unnecessary?

    import java.io.*;
    class method {
        public static void main(String args[]) {
            System.out.println("hey ho");
            void clear() {
                System.out.println("Finally its working ");
            }
        }
    }

    The 'main' is just a method, just like your 'clear' method. You need a main method so java knows where to start executing your application.

    So what you are trying to do now is placing a method (clear) in another method (main) which isn't possible.

    What you could do is call the 'clear' method from the main method, like this:
    import java.io.*;
    class method {
        public static void main(String args[]) {
            System.out.println("hey ho");
            clear();
        }
        void clear() {
            System.out.println("Finally its working ");
        }
    }

    You don't have to import java.io.* btw

    Default Re: i have writtena simple java program with one method but method is not executing ....

    yaa ryt thnx for the important tip .... but a small correction non static method can't be called with static context so either call them with a object or use it as a static method .....
    anyways than a ton was stuck on this for quite a long tym



    class method
    {
    public static void main(String fdff[])
    {
    System.out.println("hey ho");
    clear();
    }
    public static void clear() //static method
    {
    System.out.println("Finally its working ");
    }
    }
