But the convention in Java is to put the brackets after the class or type name.
public static void main(String[] args)
int[] someNumbers = { 1,2,3,4 };

You should always follow the conventions to avoid confusion. That is why we recommentd you study the language in detail.

The answer to this and many more questions can be found in the documentation:
The Java™ Tutorials[^]

For example:
Arrays (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)[^]

The [] in this case indicates that the parameter type is an array; it belongs with the parameter type, not the parameter name.
String[] args
