    Default Memory related query

    Hi Folks,

    I have a class with the member methods are static(not member data).
    I have written this class to hold the utility methods for my application.But i have declared all the member methods are static.

    Can anyone please confirm me whether the memory (stack) gets allocated to functions as soon as i run my application or the memory will be allocated based on the normal function call.

    I wanted to know is this the write approach to code or not ?

    Thanks & Regards

    Default Re: Memory related query

    Why do you think you need to know this? Are you having a problem with memory or performance? Premature optimization is the root of all evil.

    But to answer your question, the stack is not affected until you call a method. You can confirm this by calling Thread.currentThread().getStackTrace() or new Exception().printStackTrace().
