Can a static method be final in Java?

Yes, you can make a static method final in Java.

When we declare a static method as final its prevents from method hiding and encounters compile time error: Cannot override the final method from Parent.

public class Parent {

	final static void helloWorld() {

		System.out.println("Hello from Parent.");


class Child extends Parent {

	// compile error : Cannot override the final method from Parent
	static void helloWorld() {

		System.out.println("Hello from child.");
