i need to know if object refrences that are not initialized explicitly are set to null.
And also if u u can access an inner class using this instance too like: outerclass.innerclass i = innerclass() can u also instactiate it like this? i know of the other one which is outer.inner i = new outer().new inner() i was wondering if u can access it the other way with the this refrence
thanx in advance for ur help

A good way to satisfy both of your questions would be to write a couple of quick test programs to see what happens.
