Why doesn’t the following code generate a NullPointerException even when the instance is null?

Description:

Test t = null;
t.someMethod();


 public static void someMethod() {
  ...
}

Solution:

There is no need for an instance while invoking a static member or method, since static members belongs to a class rather than an instance.

A null reference may be used to access a class (static) variable without causing an exception.
