Question :
Can a method have more than one access modifier?
Answer :
No
How about public static or public native? The answer seems to assume only private, public, protected and default are access modifiers.
Please clarify.
Thanks,
Sanjay

Hello Sanjay,

Modifiers are Java keywords that gives the compiler information about the nature of code,
data, or classes. Modifiers are:
public
protected
private
final
abstract
static
native
transient
synchronized
volatile
From the above list of modifiers public, proteted and private are access modifiers. Remaining
modifiers do not fall in this category.

Note: default is a keyword in Java but it is not Access Modifier and "friendly" is not a
keyword in Java.
Normally when people talk in Java about class, data, methods which don't have any access modifier
they say that it has a defalut access modifier. The use of word default here is incoerrect. As default
is a keyword in Java. Instead friendly word is used.
"Friendly is not a Java keywords; it is simple a name that is given the access level that result from
not specifying an access modifier." OR in other words
"Friendly is the name of the default access of classes, variables, and methods, if you don't
specify an access modifier."
Regards,
Raj.
