Hi alec, yes you can.

Trying it would have probably been less work than formulating the question... :roll:

Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

You would control the visibility by using "private", "protected", "public" or default/package (no modifier, as in your example), just like any other instance variable. The "final" simply means it can't be changed.
