In this example, class A has 3 members, a field x, a method m and a nested class B. Since B extends A, B inherits the field x and the method m. x and m are members of B.
B is a member of A. Since B extends A, is B a member of B?

yes. why is the confusion?
also, why one would need such functionality where "a member EXTENDS the container class"...
have you come across such an example?

Thank you Maulin for showing me how the code goes into an infinite loop. That is good to know.
I was have trouble trying to understand how a class declared in an interface could implement the interface. I think I made the problem worse by changing the interface to a class.
Thank you for your time. Marlene
