class Outer { // outer class
void test() {
final int outer_x = 100;
public class Inner { // Inner class
void display() {
System.out.println("display: outer_x =" + outer_x);
}
}
Inner inner = new Inner();
inner.display();
}
}
class Parent {
public static void main(String args[]) {
Outer outer = new Outer();
System.out.println(outer.toString());
outer.test();
}
}
</PRE>
I am getting compilation error for above code. but if i remove public modifier from inner class. It is working fine. and i am getting proper result. Can any body help me here???
?? Can i use any other modifier for inner class for ex. in above ex. its working fine for default modifier but not for other modifiers.
?? Is there any way to instantiate inner class out of Outer class. For ex. In above ex. can i use Inner class reference in Parent class. (other that static)

Local inner classes cannot be public.
You have a local inner class and not just an inner class.

BTW, local classes are classes defined inside methods.
