Have a look at it

name this file test.java
Create another file in the aas directory now make a file with the following code and name it test1.java.

Now the problem is that if i make this var xintest1 as static then the line 1 can access it as if it is not protected but public.

Well I thought about it and i guess that this because now that the xintest1 is static it can be accessed by any class instance or simply by class name so its just that I am using it through an instance.
