 Q1. What are inline functions ? Do we have inline functions in Java ?Core Java
Ans. Inline functions , just like C++ Macros is an optimized technique used by compiler to reduce the execution time. If the function is working on pre identified values ( which aren't resolved at runtime ), the function can execute the method and evaluate the outcome at compile time only instead of making a function call at runtime.

In Java, the optimizations are usually done at the runtime or JVM level. At runtime, the JVM perform some analysis to determine which methods to inline. Java compiler would never inline any method and there is no way in java for the developer to explicitly define inlining of methods as it's take intrinsically care of during runtime only.
