This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
This is an example of declaring an (non-anonymous) inner class within a method, i.e. yo( ). The rules of applying modifiers to this type of inner class is similar to that of local variables. You cannot marked the this type of inner class with the following modifiers : static, private, protected, public, transient, volatile, native, and synchronized. The only modifiers you are allowed to used on them are : final, abstract and strictfp (and of course without any modifiers at all).
Now My question is if we say "Rules which are applied to local method class is same as rules applied to Local variable" Then how can we apply abstract and strictfp keywords to local method class.
In my opinion abstract and trictfp are class modifiers. Anything that is method local other than a class is a variable declaration and initialization and/or a method call. So a variable cannot have the modifiers: abstract and strictfp, anywhere. Hence the reason.
