Mandatory for methods, optional for method arguments

Using semicolons Every statements end with semicolon optional
main method To make a class executable Don’t need
Initializing String arrays, static arrays Curly braces { “abc”, “dfg”} Square brackets [“abc”, “dfg”]
autoboxing/unboxing/conversion of primitives yes No, everything is Object and uses only Objects
Inner static classes yes no
