How to access

Suppose I want to access the class A's method and variables(ofcourse public) from another class B, in which class B doesn't extend the class A.

Simply I want to access the class A, and to create the instances of class A in the class B, without class B extending class A.

For that what are the criteria or rules for it. I think we can do it in package and if so, some example codings will be very helpful.

package a;
public class A
public String x;
package b;
import a.A;

public class B
private A a;
