Does a local inner class which resides inside a static method still have the "can only access local variables that is declared final" restriction?

yes whether the class is declared in a static or a non static method, it can only access local variables that are marked final..

when you compile this code it gives an error like:: local variable b is accessed from within inner class; needs to be declared final
System.out.println("b = " + b);
1 error
