I'm wondering why access to non-final local variables is not permitted from local classes? Could somebody tell me the reason why? Thank you

Remember that local variables are only available to the method! After the method returns there would be no reference to the variable any longer! But if it were made final the value of the local variable doesnt change even if the method returns1 hope u understand.
