local scope : Java Glossary


local scope
a variable declared inside a method that lives only while that method is executing. A variable not a class variable nor an instance variable. It is not visible outside that method. Some Java compilers have a limit of only 31 local variables per method. Watch out.

If there are two threads running a method at once, there are two sets of local variables.

Local variables are sometimes called temporary variables, stack variables or method variables.
