In case of static imports

static import allows to access the static members of a class without class qualifications. For Example, to access the static methods you need to call the using class name &minsu;

Math.sqrt(169);

But, using static import you can access the static methods directly.

Example

Live Demo

import static java.lang.Math.*;

public class Sample{
   public static void main(String args[]){
      System.out.println(sqrt(169));
   }
}

Output

13.0
