This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
This's been my first post here (I previously posted to SCJP and SCWCD forums)
I've got a question on using inner classes in SCJD assignment, namely - do I have to generate accessor/mutator pair for every property of an inner class or it's acceptable to utilize the special relationship that is between inner and outer class and use them in a regular manner ex. inner_class_instance.inner_class_property ??
I use inner classes too (I like them ) and I'm also unsure about this. Most of my inner classes are private and used as pure data structures. Hence, most of their member attributes are final and then I used not to implement the accessor methods for these attributes. I described it in the java doc. I hope this may satisfy the examiners.
