I'm studying K & B book for SCJP 1.4. I have a doubt regarding Access Modifiers in Java. In K & B book a Table 2.1 is given on page 83. In this table second row says that "You can access a protected member of a from any class in same package". Can you please explain the meaning of this. I think this doesnt work because you need to extend that class even if its in the same package.
