About word that is used in the course

Hi, I am reading ariticle in the following java course:

the third bullet point of stack trace said :

The method that invoked that one

I don’t know what this refer to and how it differ from second bullet point.

Hi there,

From looking at the bullet points, I understand the stack trace as a roadmap. As you go down the line, each item below is the one that activated or “invoked” the one above it.

  • Method 3 (this is the method that was running)
  • Method 2 (this one invoked method 3)
  • Method 1 (this one invoked method 2)

Does that make sense?
