Java static import example

If any class which is not in same package, we need to import it. If we import that class we can directly access static variables and methods with the class name.

If you use static import,  you do not need to use class name any more.

Lets understand with the help of example

Without using static import :

With using static import :

As you can see, we have directly used out.println and PI without using class name because  we have used static import here.

Advantages:

If you have lot of static variables, you have to write less code.
 
Disadvantages:
 
It is very hard to read and unmaintainable.
