hi lakshmi
i think you are looking for how to declare classes in java

access_modifer other_modifers Class Classname

we can interchange the position of access modifiers and other modifers

we cannot declare more than one access modifiers in any defination i.e class and class member

other modifiers include which are valid for class declaration are
abstract final static

imp notes
1]we should not declare any class abstract and final
2]static keyword comes into play in case of inner classes

I would suggest going through the sun tutorial. You're not going to get very far just knowing the syntax for declaring a class, without knowing what the modifiers mean.
I agree. Here's the link:
