Basic Java Keywords have been covered!

I have covered what I considered the 42 most common keywords in the Java language. The remaining six keywords deal with more advanced topics like synchronization. With the already covered keywords, you should be able to write industry-caliber code. If you haven't read my articles yet, just search here for "Java Keywords." The keywords are covered in parts I through XVIII. I would like to use this opportunity to say thanks for sticking around. I hope this series have been of help to you. Regardless, I would love to hear from you soon. In the next few days, I will resume this series, hoping to complete all keywords by the end of this month (October 2021). See you soon!

Using static method in interfaces Let me start by saying that the only reas

Java Keywords (Part XVII): The default keyword
