Searching for: Static Methods in Java
Class methods are methods that are called on the class itself, not on a specific object instance. The static modifier ensures implementation is the same across all class instances. Many standard built-in classes in Java (for example, Math) come with static methods (for example, Math.abs(int value)) that are used in many Java programs.
