In Java 2 : The Complete Reference,FOURTH EDITION They mentioned in one example, a variable public by default. Is it correct?.
In that book, kindly see the page,

If no specifier is actually included in class/method/variable declaration, it defaults to "package", which makes accesibility open to members in the same package, if a package is specified, or members in the same directory, if there is no package statement included.
