Hi all,

I have a doubt regarding inner classes and interfaces. Can anyone please clarify this to me. Consider the below code and tell me why it gives error in the lines commented,



Thanks in advance.

In both cases static reference is made to non-static fileds, hence the compiler error.

Static context relates to class, it works with class. It has no reference like this or super, so we cant access the non-static fields from static context.

Other way, accessing static fields from non-static context is allowed as each instance is related to the class.

Hai,

I just want to know if in the above code, the line,

interface StaticMemberInterface_1{int kk = 2000;}

Is kk implicitly static?

yes, all fields inside an interface are implicitly static and final.
