[java] Java out.println() how is this possible?

I've seen some code such as:

out.println("print something");

I tried import java.lang.System;

but it's not working. How do you use out.println() ?

This question is related to java printing libraries

The answer is

static imports do the trick:

import static java.lang.System.out;

or alternatively import every static method and field using

import static java.lang.System.*;

Addendum by @Steve C: note that @sfussenegger said this in a comment on my Answer.

"Using such a static import of System.out isn't suited for more than simple run-once code."

So please don't imagine that he (or I) think that this solution is Good Practice.
