What will be printed as a result of compiling and running this code?

public class TestClass {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Base sub = new Sub();
        sub.test();
    }
}

class Base {
    public static void test() {
        System.out.println("Base.test()");
    }
}

class Sub extends Base {
    public static void test() {
        System.out.println("Sub.test()");
    }
}
Explanation
For static methods the late binding is uncharacteristically and the compiler selects the type based on the type of the link, and not the type of the assigned object.
