In the blue depths of the stack trace…

  • 3
  • Locked
Remember the golden rule: function A calls function B, which calls function C. And to exit A, you must first exit B, and to do that you must exit C. Got it? Good. And now we'll write a method that returns the stack trace depth, i.e. the number of methods in the stack trace. And one more thing: display this number on the screen.

I am not learning anything like this, i understand letting us do some googling but there is just way to less information on this topic.

CodeGym, please look at the exercise star rating and the comments. This Level needs more instruction.

Intelij Idea shows me output 3 but CodeGym shows me output 12... How have I understand it?

I'm completing these tasks with a lot of google and looking at the comments. I totally understand how the stacktrace works, but the programming terminology hasn't been explained AT ALL.

Don't know how I'm completing these tasks without understanding much.

For everyone who is thinking why depth is equal some number use for each loop to print out stack trace to find out why is it so deep :)

It's silly to have this fail when everything is right, but you called System.out in the 'wrong' method.

element.length gives the value 12. So, doesn't it mean that the stack depth is 12? Please also clarify why the value is 12 and what is the actual stack depth?
