how is it possible to use that f() in localInner?

boolean b = true;<br />System.out.println ("I believe in Java.<br />Java will make my dream come " + b);

localInner.f() does not work because f() is not static (and inner classes cannot have static declarations). So you would need to create an instance of localInner, and call the method using that instance.
