class R2
{
	final int t;
	void doit(){
		t=7;
	}
}

Blank finals allow us to declare a final variable without explicitly initializing it. We can initialize it only once later. Then, why is th above code not working ?

Recommended Answers

A blank final var must be initialised in all constructors - ie it must have a value by the time the containing instance has been initialised.
