Hi All, I'm new to this site and Java and apologise if this isn't the correct forum to post this. In the article "Getting in Touch with your Inner Class ", I refer to a line of code that the author says can be used to "instantiate both the outer class and inner class at the same time": Inner i = new Outer().new Inner(); My question is : Does this really work ? I've tried this and get a compile error: TestMe.java:33: Class Inner not found in type declaration. Inner i = new Outer().new Inner(); ^ 1 error Is this related to the version of Java I'm using ? Thanks in advance. Ravi..

By the way, Ravi, your display name does not conform to the JavaRanch Naming Policy. Although that does not matter in this forum, if you post in the other forums, you will be requested to change it. Thanks.

Hi Marilyn, I've changed my display name - I should show up as "Ravi Varman" and not "Ravi A". Sorry about that - I should have read the naming policy more carefully. Secondly, thanks for clearing up the question I had about instantiating inner classes.
